Because virtually every boat owner has been in a position where a manufacturer played this hardball game to one extent or another, and we get vicarious pleasure reacting to this extreme case, where...

Yeah - I heard that he decided to buy a 41 Luhrs after reading the latest few pages of this thread.

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

Sorry, but the guy who has a vested interest and bashes the boat automatically has more credibility than the guy that has a vested interest and praises the boat. Doesn't take a genius to figure that...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

You forgot 11. Poster with too much time on his hands posts a 10 point synopsis.

Then 12. Another poster adds a post with an addendum to that list.

Where DO we go from here??

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

The problem started with John and Warren - Bill and Roger were just henchmen - albeit willing and natural ones at that. They got caught in a bind and pulled a Nixon until it was too late.

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

So where do you suppose the Luhrs boys will end up in all of this. I hope those two silver-spooned buffoons get everything that they deserve.

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

The Luhrs brothers are a shining example of what happens when you have everything handed to you on a silver platter. Old Henry-1 must be turning over in his grave. With the glut of Silvertons on the...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

Business and boats don't mix very well, especially when you have two sons of a patriarch entrepreneur "running" the company, and friends and family put in key positions, acting with impunity against...

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...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

No - if you want avocado green, you have to buy a Bertram.

The Luhrs does come in "Sea-bottom brown" though.

If you follow the thread, you can see I did suggest that, and in every case, I was simply responding to Mr. Y2 tangent's points. I would have no problem if the entire line of discussion was stricken,...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

Sorry – too lazy to embed the quotes – went with a more direct approach. This could set a record for long annoying nested exchanges that only two people bother to read.

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

Y2k,

I have no doubt that you are very good at what you do, whether it be fishing, or selling boats, both of which you have represented in previous posts. However, what this exchange always comes...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

Y2k,

Well, at least you are consistent. As usual, almost none of the above has anything to do with the topic at hand – more on that later, but let’s deal first with the one “point” you made that...

Feedback,

Your handle seems to be appropriate - as in acoustic feedback, as in something that repeats itself indefinitely, and is exceedingly annoying to the listener. See also "high pitched...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

The barriers to getting a class action suit going include the retainers, as well as the plan for sharing in the anticipated settlement. I would guess that the former would not have been an issue, if...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

I didn't see any protests going on, but the Luhrs guys looked lonelier than the Maytag repairman. I could have sworn that the 41 they had there was leaning to port while at the dock! It must have...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

threeangels,

Stop blaming the messenger. If you are a victim, you are a victim of Luhrs (the company), not Luhrs 41. Why don't you just petition them to do the right thing. Maybe you got one of...

Re: 41 LUHRS BUYER BEWARE

Let's say that boater A is in Luhrs 41 and Mr. Sunshine's position, and truly had no recourse.

Contrast this with boater B who is set on revenge against a builder for a minor isolated issue where...
