As often when one tries to simplify matters one ends up head
over heels in something way more complicated than the simple minded is prepared to understand........ i.e.: Where exactly in my above posting
did you read a sentence like "The Germans are NOT ABLE to build solid boats.....?"
Did it ever cross your mind, that it was and is not the objective for Bavaria
to build heavy-duty blue-water-cruising yachts?
The majority of their clientele would be ...hmmm, ... *sailing* the Baltic
Sea or North Adriatic
or between the Greek Islands
in July or August. So anything more "solid" would price
them right out of the water
against the competition that can at least work
with cheaper labor (Germany is one of the most labor-cost-intensive countries in Europe
, in return they manage to accumulate and hold highly skilled people - everything has it's odds and merrits...)
Does not change the fact, that mistaking a Bavria for a blue-water-cruiser would be just that: A major mistake.
