Does it look like this boat is throwing more wake on it's port side than the starboard?

What's with the funky spray coming off the transom in both pix? Yes it's an ugly boat.

More importantly, why is he aiming at that green daymarker? That will leave quite a paint mark....

I'm sure a bouy tender will come along and paint it green again.

Red,
Spray if from clam shells on the side exhaust. These reduce soot on hull sides by diverting water outwards and creates a passage for exhaust gasses thus minimizing station wagon effect most fb boat have.
Gerg,
That green thing was just in the way and we ran it over. Why in heavens sake is it there.
Boatman,
We own the bouy tender service, stop letting out our business plan.

"This thread proved to be an accurate depiction of Luhrs quality control.

Is that a question, a statement, a fact, a misrepresentation?

What are you basing your writing on? Somebody cranking on here just to get responces? Personal experiences?

It's pretty much a one man show over there though. Garriga alone has the lions share of posts and probably over 50% of the page count.

I thought I was going to be able to read the whole thing but just couldnt do it. I got through like 20 pages and then skipped around and saw the pages with the good looking gals.

I saw the op's post about the Luhrs Yahoo forum and I am a part of that forum and remember him startng that thread. I own a much older Luhrs that I have, and am still re doing to my likings. I have been on a lot of Luhrs, new and old, just because they are Luhrs and was curious to how I could make mine more like the newer ones. I have yet to step foot on one that was an absolute dream. However, I have yet to step on one that was and absolute _ _ _ _ pile either.

Ive also, like many here, have had the opprotunity to ride, fish, and vacation on many different brands of boat. Not one of them in my mind was perfect. But the question of "perfect" has to be more defined. Is it not perfect to my liking, is it not perfect cause a screw was loose, is it not perfect cause it didnt go through the 8ft seas like we believe a 42' boat should. Perfect, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

Now in this situation he seems he had some serious items, and some not so serious items. Nothing was bad enough to start a bash fest on many forums about how crappy Luhrs is or was. For as far as I read he had ways to have them repaired. Did the boat get fixed? Whatever happened to the outcome? Im hoping someone can spare us the reading of 100+ pages.

If I could go out and buy a new boat I dont know what kind it would be. Cabo has a nice looking boat and the ones I have been on handle good. Luhrs makes a nice looking boat and the ones I have been on handled good. At any point tho I think the buyer should make an effort to go over his/her boat before delivery, new or used it shouldnt matter.

Again what was outcome of this deal?

Uh - Oh I just heard that Luhrs put in an offer to buy Contender, because they "KNOW" how to build larger boats !!

































Had to get another post in, for posterities sake.

Are you sure you didn't buy a Toyota?

Really, I would take these issues up with the reps where you purchased it.

Good Luck,
