they love to make a big deal out of this like its some great feat, you can do that with any (almost any) fiberglass boat and the results will be the same, chipped gelcoat. I had the misfortune of seeing a boat dropped by the fork lift at my marina from about 10ft in the air and it bounced like a basketball, the only siginificant damage to the hull was where it hit the steel angle that keeps the fork lift from driving in the water.

That may be true but I wonder how many boats can be cut in half amidship and still go out on the open water.
That was the weirdest disabled boat test I've ever seen.

See ya,

I am shocked at the negative comments on this. I think it is great and if all boats can do it then they should show it. The made a pretty good investment just show their stuff other should do the same like in the auto industry.
