Poor product...Poor service!!!
Reading the chain of events
that transcribed between the owners of Bumfuzzled and the makers of Wildcat catamarans really disturbs me.
There is no way that a 2 year old boat goes thru that much delamination without major construction issues to begin with. Their lack of timely e-mail response, not returning inquiries, claiming their super qualified surveyor
stamped his approval (like they never make mistakes) illustrates that they are more concerned about future sales than satisifying current
After the builders tried to blame the origional owners, the new owners with poor gel coat repairs
, and then stating the repair specialist in New Zealand
was next to incompetant, he blames GOD! IT WAS LIGHTNING
that delaminated half of the boat!!!
You would think that a builder
would like to clearly identify the problem and understand why it happened. It seems like the owners could fly all over the world trying to drum up business at sail shows but not rectify this problem. They probably already know about their production short comings and didn't want to fly to NZ to show it.
There are too many reputable builders out there that want your business, I suggest you pass on the builders like WILDCATS that don't return your call after the check is cashed.
I hope their challanges are behind them and they can get on with thier adventures.
