Concept -

Not to change the subject (but, changing the subject), can you tell me where you get the trick recesses for the cockpit fire extinguishers? I'd love to do the same with my boat but havn't seen any sources for the fiberglass recess boxes.

Thanks - Greg

I've owned several boats that have had to have rot cut out of them. Some I bought for resale, some I bought to keep and use. While it is certainly a concern and needs addressed, I see no reason to get freaked out about the entire boat and manufacturer.

Look at the purchase price, look at the cost (money AND time) to repair it properly, add them together and see how you feel about it. If the deal doesn't sound as sweet then move on. Seems like a pretty simple concept to me...

There was a 1994 Concept 28' at Marine Services in Woodbridge, Virginia over the winter that had badly rotted stringers to the point that the gas tank had broken free of its mounts. When I stopped by the deck was removed, the boat was completely stripped down to the bare hull with the stringers completely removed and there was a lot of grinding going on. The boat is back together now, but I'm sure glad I didn't have to tackle it.

I guess as a boat builder you can't really control the accesories that people put on their boats. For example, if someone were to buy my boat and put a t top, radar arch or some other bolt on and not 5200 it... there is a possibility that my stringers could rot. Or if someone takes the center console off for some type of service, bolts it back on and does not properly seal it... you could possibly have some rot. I just think that, at least in some cases, people do half a$$ jobs to finish quickly and neglect the long term effect of not doing something properly. Just my 2 cents..

Thumbs up Re: Rotten Concept. Is this common?

It's hard to judge any of this without seeing the damage. My guess, with the reputation that Concept has, it would probably be some sort of aftermarket item that was installed after it left the factory.
Obviously, it is completely out of the manufacturer's control what someone does once it is out the door.
But it is refreshing to see Susan jump to a quick response and maybe even a remedy for the situation!

Two thumbs up Susan! That is great customer service!

Hello Sharky Marine, not met you before. Don't know anything about this boat in VA, spoke w/Luis and he says we never got a call on it. Thank you for the compliment, we sleep well at night.

I'm around here once in awhile....

I am a NJPPC member and was in awe when I saw the boats DaveP was selling and his latest addition at the last Poker Run.

Sharp boats.

I manufactured boats for awhile in the mid 80's to early 90's. Always paid attention to the details. It's nice to see a company such as yours do the same....
