Let's get things a bit back on track
For those old enough to a member
of my generation, remember when "made in Japan" waas synonomous with bad quality? And whenever something was of bad quality folks would comment "Oh, made in Japan
I also seem to remember when the american car industry had the same label attached to it "American cars are sh*t"
Par to the issue reveloving around Hunters and Bavarias is that they seem to push the envelope regarding boat design and boat manufacturing.
Americans did this from time to time - remember the Clipper Ships? Fastest ship on the sea inthose days but when they were first launched most other seafaring nations said they wouldn't be able to withstand the storms.
Or the first Americas Cup racers - the brits didn't believe that those boats could withstand the loads they would experience during the races (hmmm- something about a 135 year dominance in that race
comes to mind)
so yes - the production boat manufacturers, Hunter
, bavaria, benejeene and Hansa etc are experimenting with design (let's not forget that modern design technology have moved forward from the days when a bostbuilder relied only on experience - today material stresses etc can be calculated quite closely).
Is this bad? no. Without this type of "thinking outside the box" we wouldn't have the boats we have today. Will there be mistakes
I'm reminded of the joke:
Two astronauts are sitting inthe capsule and as the countdown nears -0- the one says to the ohter:
"Doesn't it make you nervous to think you are sittiing on top of 10 billion dollars of "low bid"
