Brunswick is a great company and the quality of the boats will be hard to replace.

Yes, I agree. My dad worked 20 years as a BRC manager and they were very good to him. But their quality is sure hard to beat.

They make awful boats. About time. They've mismanaged and ruined every company and product they ever touched.
