Looks like Luhrs has spent their time working on a gag order instead of working to repair their name.

It's either a gag order or they are finally negotiating with the righteously squeaky wheels that are behind this thread, or both. It was bound to happen, but it's really too little too late. The other 37 owners either don't have the problem, don't know they have the problem, or are just trying to salvage whatever equity they have in the boat by waiting for this to die on the vine.

The problem with the GAG order or whatever has brought the sudden silence is that anytime any prospective Luhrs buyer does a google search of Luhrs 41 problems it will see this thread right at the top of the page. Nobody that reads that is going to buy the boat. So either Luhrs is going to have to strong arm THT to take it off the server or they will need to resolve this and try to repair what is a very poor corp image.

It would be nice to know what the outcome is either way. This never ends well for any of the parties involved unortunately.

Its boat show season. Have any of the Hull Truthers said anything to the Luhrs reps at any of the Big Shows? I was tempted to at the NY city show.

Yes I said something at the Lauderdale show and did so in a polite way. They (a large FL dealer) said there was 2 sides to every story. I told them that it is possible things are being exagerated but there is without a doubt a problem with the hull and that they have shown little care about the negative perception outthere and that it is much worse than the dealers or Luhrs might think. I also said the notice on the Luhrs site about the recall and the blog by one of the executives was a joke.

I doubt they cared what I thought but they were also an Ocean dealer and I was looking at those when the conversation came up. Later when I walked by I saw the same guy standing on the 41 at the show. Never did step foot on the boat as it seemed like a waste of time with so many nice boats at the show to look at.

PSA do your realy think some one is not going to buy a Luhrs 41 becuse 2 owners bashed them here ? a good sea trial will tell you how the boat handles, some the photos showed how poorly the boat was been taken care of ,but I guess thats Luhrs fault . I have been told by 1 person here what a POS my boat is and how bad my engines are . I don't care . I have been looking at getting a bigger boat , would I look at the Luhrs? sure . The number 1 boat on my short list is Ocean . if you post that your get a lot of ocean bashing . Do I care ? No ! Why becuse most of the bashers are so stuck on there brand that they have blinders on when it comes to other boats or or they are cluless and think they know it all and don't know s--- . No boat is perfect , no boat can be everything . I can buy just about any boat I want and I will buy what I want . will I post it here sure will after I buy it not before .

I can not comment on the hull itself as I have not ridden on one. But that is only what started this PR disaster for Luhrs. The recall notice or whatever they called it was a joke. They basically said they would slap some bandaids on there hull but really did not think it needed to be done. We all know they would not have touched 1 hull if they did not find issues with the boat. Then one of the senior execs goes and posts a blog like a 15 year old on myspace. Just not things you would like to see. Bashing is typing some baseless opinion on the internet. When you are spending your own out of pocket dough on attorney's then you may actually have something. I think there are more than 2 people involved these are just the only 2 that decided to use the internet as a tool in the situation. I don't know all the details and may be off base to a degree. Hopefully the truth will eventually come out and we can all learn something from the matter.

Google search Luhrs 41. Man it seems that every 41 ever made is for sale.
