I wouldn't trust it. One of the local marinas used an off-brand RV/Marine anitfreeze last year to save a few dollars. It wound up costing them thousands. Turns out it was diluted.

No posts from the OP for quite awhile now. Betcha one dollar the producers found out about this thread and gave fishman 77 $$$ to sign an NDA.

You were right to exclude Carver. They are great safe-water boats (or more appropriately: floating RVs) but I wouldn't trust mine off shore. Silvertons have the same reputation.
