Why is that ? if it is so bad ?
Why did Chevettes and Yugos sell more cars than any other at the time? Why does the Ford Fiesta outsell all others now? Why are Atlantic 57's so rare? Do Schionning Waterlines really suck so much that they will only make a couple each year? Why does the Macgregor
26 outsell all other boats?
I don't understand using volume sold as an indication of anything other than popularity, price
point, or a deal struck with fleet services. Or maybe manufacturing capacity.
Again, look back at my review and tell me where I mentioned anything subjective. I'm not bashing Lagoon or supporting Lipari. I found the 400 to be a singularly bad boat. Maybe it was only the boat show hull
that was bad.
I said nothing about its sailing abilities because I never sailed one, but please tell me where I was wrong about the galley storage
or the anchor
rollers. Raised helms and wood colors are personal tastes and I didn't comment one way or another on them except to note that they are the current
trend with many boats. I mentioned the round bar seat back, which may also be personal taste, but I have never met anyone that found that design comfortable, or even not painful. I also mentioned that the helm
did not have any protection from the elements. That is not subjective and not unique to raised helms.
I understand an argument based on specifics, or even differences in personal preferences. But not one based on number of units sold.
