The dealers don't exactly call the media when one of their boats sink, just look at the B-55. A brand new boat costing close to a million dollars sinks in 6 foot swells, not a good ad for a "blue water yacht". The dealer kept a tight lid on this story. You would think, especially when the boat took a few days to sink, that the dealer or the insurance
company would expedite someone out to the boat for repairs
. At the very least they SHOULD want to know why it sprung a leak. Sometimes these boats sink and we never hear about it because there are no living witnesses.
