And they said reincarnation was impossible, as the dead can never be revived.

We at THT have proven that theory wrong!

It would be cool if 41 could make a table of contents in post #1, so we could just see the important posts, the major twists in this thread.. where's the final resolution post? what number? where we find out what the owners went and did? I'm only about 20 pages in, wish I didn't have to work, I'd just read the whole thing.

Sorry, but you have to read the whole thing.

Then you should search for the "HOTLINES" thread, and burn some life reading through it.

And then the "Jersus" thread.

And then "Team Bloodstream".


Some would call it wasted time, others would call it an education.

I do not feel ALL Luhrs are POS. The 41 model is. Good luck with your 38 -- that is probably the best ride in the Luhrs fleet. Hope you get your punch list complete now is a good time to do that. They do not want more angry customers -- they have enough lawsuits with the 41 coming

I just love reading real stories of big mistakes and seeing the outcome.

Will do, it's better than reading a book!

Maybe we can get the A-1 outboards and 32 Topaz rebuild threads brought back to life, there was some quality entertainment in those guys.

For sheer volume of posts and longevity, this one has to be a legend though.

Okay, I read all 124 pages in about 24 hours. My thoughts

Boatmanalso - is an idiot and one of the most annoying posters I've seen on this site. I ignored 50% of his posts. I think he might get drunk and come on here.

What it came down to is we had 2 very upset guys who seem to have lost money on what was a nice looking boat, but had serious problems that could result in death.

Some questions:

The boat manf. website is back up and running - are they still open and in NJ?

How much money did both 41 owners lose exactly?

What were the results of the lawsuit?

I remember feeling so sorry for him (boatmanalso ) at the time, the 41's were in the final swirl of the flush it seemed and his son had just bought one. He kind of stumbles at first but I admired him for trying to stick up for his son's purchase. I think it ended up being one of the ones that had the correction but the reputation had already taken the huge hit. His posts were very entertaining.

I just did a re-read on the whole thread and it's clear with 20/20 look back lenses when the situation could have been corrected by Luhrs, but they dug in their heels and sunk the whole company.

I would also like to have known what happened to the guy that supposedly had issues running the warranty claims monies and if some of the accusations were true or just the ship sinking and people out for themselves and trying to drag him down.

Amazing

I think they hung a g2 Etec and a f300 on it and then did a bunch of shifts into reverse at cruising speed to see if they would hydro lock.
