    >Boats will begin to sell again when the industry can create a product which is reliable and well-supported.

    Boats are now where automobiles were in 1916 where a Sunday drive in the country more often than not ended up with a mechanical disaster and a lack of trained repair support.

    The industry should sponsor technical institute training centers where marine service can be taught. And someone needs to engineer a product at least two logs higher in reliability that we have in 2009.

    >Amen! We encountered problem after problem with the last brand-new boat we purchased. And when we’d take the boat in for repair, the attitude was, “well, that’s just part of boating.” Are you kidding me? Boating is a pastime, like any other sport. Don’t kid yourselves, folks. People do not NEED to boat, they WANT to boat.

    >In the interest of higher quality and reliability, the Anonymous poster wolud be better served had it provides a system by system approach to his statement.

    Was it the machinery that faied, the entertainment unit that ruined the day or the electronics that ran him aground?

    With automotive speeds reaching 20 miles per hour in 1915 driving 80 on the water seems almost impossible today, but those of us that do it weekly know performance cost money and a failure is EXPECTED.

    What would he pay for the perfect boat? It can be made, but for far more than anyone wold spend.
