When it comes to judging a boat, car etc at boat shows. There have to be rules and guid lines, otherwise it can be a mess and cause serious debates and well. Bitterness. And in the end no one really wins. So I do applaud the Hull Card and as delivered from the factory guidelines. BUT, and you knew a big but was coming. Hit it Troy.. Anyway I digress, which is shockingly easy..
So, lets say then, your boat should NOT have a 5200 bottom, and should only have 3 coats of varnish, and further more, not be all that perfect. Should the zipper label be real? Just asking. And even deeper, if delivered in a way that is no longer considered safe. Well.. You can’t say one thing is fine if another isn’t. Yes I know I am being a bit absurd, but trying to make a point. The if you cant see it thing, is kinda flawed from the start.
Logic dictates that safety should be paramount, and a 5200 bottom baked in under some inner planks scored to feel real, makes sense, or a 12 volt system made to appear like a 6 volt one. All make sense, but do break the rules. So where does it stop? Or start? mmm not so easy is it.
