Show me another Vee that rolls over(due to hard racing) at close to 120mph and the two walk away unscratched. Just sayin.............

I believe your inference was that people don't get hurt when OL's rollover. Or that they only roll "due to hard racing".

RACING in a full canopy with proper safety equipment is a different scenario than pleasure boating incidents due to driver error.

Don't go there with this topic of safety, you are opening a door that will not be easily shut and may expose your favorite brand to legal scrutiny in a Civil manner, boat shouldn't have rolled to begin with....(that is another story, you opened this door I did not). There have been deaths in your brand (OL), I advise you to drop it for your own good, and the good of OL. But do what you want, it is your choice. You are passionate about your brand and that is good; selling points which are neutral such as the build quality, speed, newest design, great ergonomics, will minimize exposure, and sell boats, and are great. If you want to tout safety as a key selling feature be prepared to back it up statistically, and show death to accident ratios that are far in above the other brands in the market place at comparable speeds and conditions (one of many factors), ect. I know there are many that will always say, it is or was driver error, that is another topic.

Do what you want with my advice; call me with any questions or concerns. Not trying to be hard on you, I was once young too and found criticism hard to digest. I am certainly not nearly as knowledgeable as many on this board, but what I do not know I can figure out, and I learn from others as well.
