Wow, all the haters. I just can't believe that noble tht'rs would be so cutting.

I'm shocked.

Actually what I'm shocked at is that anyone would buy the boat at any price. But I guess somewhere there is another guy who will think its safe to put 40 people in it and take them out at night.

Hey, it's a yacht right?

And you may very well be right - the new owner may be more realistic with his expectations but we don't know that one way or the other. Either way, that doesn't let Luhrs41 off the hook in my book. He's the guy who thought the seller (when the seller was the corporation) should do the right thing. In my opinion, if he was a standup guy, the right thing would have been to let the new guy know the boat was a POS (to use Luhrs41's term). If he was a standup guy.
Well said. I read this whole thing a while ago and felt bad for LUHRS41. Not anymore. He has actual documented evidence that the boat he sold was a POS and it was all posted on the internet.

If this wasn't disclosed to this guy and he starts searching for problems with this boat model, I wonder what will come up first? I hope everything was disclosed and/or the boat wasn't misrepresented because even a terrible attorney could win a case against him. Especially with a full road map of the history of the boat from inception to sale posted by the seller who proves his identity over and over again in the thread.

So I came home from work sick today and thought about getting a new book on my kindle. Instead, as I'm currently infected by "new boat fever", I decide to look on TheHullTruth. Eight hours and 118 pages later, I'd like to say thank you for saving me the money of purchasing a new book. I don't think I could have found a more interesting story.

**Customer Review -- Spoiler Alert**

The lead character comes in and is initially treated as an uneducated villain, supported by the excessive use of caps lock and horrible grammar, striking out at corporate America.

Things take a turn when others come to his defense and present the same case w/ their models. The community turns their anger on the boat manufacturer, hailing our lead as the victim, caught in the middle of a cover-up. Poor reputation spreads for the manufacturer, along w/ an ailing economy, causing the company to shut their doors.

New facts are brought to the case by an assisting boat dealer, suggesting more to the story. Could our villain-turned-victim indeed be a villain after all? Has the company stood by it's product all along and tried to make things right? Is our victim taking advantage of the power of gossip by getting free annual storage/cleaning/repairs in the winter and been fishing this whole time during the peak season?

Answers we'll probably never know for sure, but the ending tells me a lot about the character of this "victim".

All said, this reader gives 5 *'s. Great read!!

P.S. What better place to put a first post?!?!?

I think I replied to this thread a few years ago, so let me add my thoughts to its resurrection.
The OP sold the boat undoubtedly without disclosure. Based on what's been said in this thread, the buyer has legal recourse if he finds he was sold a lemon.
For the OP's sake, he had better hope the buyer never sees this...if he does, he probably will be buying this POS back.

I'm not a lawyer, so I am curious if this is true.

The scenario we seem to have is that the seller and buyer never met. The boat was likely brokered by a third party with power of attorney. The broker, if it was the same yard where he bought and kept the boat, did not agree that the boat was a POS. In fact, the broker maintained it was safe/seaworthy and the seller was an agitator and overly litigious.

The broker probably knew the history full well.

So in this scenario, Morals and Ethics aside, what is the law?

Especially given how freely and publicly discoverable this information is.

I'm just curious.

It would be nice if all you people that are putting me down would have been in my place then you would be talking different. I lived the nightmare and I am glad the POS is gone. Most of you nay sayers couldnt even come up with the 20% down on the boat when i bought it!!

No one is "putting you down". Your ethics are being called into question, and justifiably so.

Rather than defend your ethics, and answer some basic questions in that regard, you make this absurd post.

Let the OP keep bumping it up every few months. He's posted his hull number and his name. If the person he sold the boat to ends up with problems and does a search, guess what?

The OP has made his case for him.

It would actually be in the OP's best interest to let it die, but we will see if he does.

He's a peice of shit, has been called out on it, and now it's on the net for the world to see.

If I had been in your place I would have continued my lawsuit against Luhrs and not have intentionally screwed someone else over.

As far as your 20% down comment, ROFL.

I am the textbook definition of a lurker on this site, I am on here daily and never ever post a thing. That being said.. I just finished reading all 118 pages of this thread. Phew, I feel like I have truly accomplished something! My buddy only made it to page 45. One of the best reads ive had in a while. Back to the shadows for me. Carry on...

From the beginning I thought you were most of the problem and you proved me right. Now you believe your one of the few that could put up the 20%!!! I know quite of few people personally who read THT could write a check for your POS.

i hope he doesn't. he is probably happy with his boat and proud to own it, as he should be. this thread would probably kill his buzz.

41 Luhrs, the 20% comment is a bit over the top. If you're such a big gun, you should have sprung for a 40 Cabo or maybe a custom. Luhrs was always a price boat from the top of the lineup to the bottom.
