    Seems like Wheelybin has got the de luxe treatment. Full marks to whoever made the decision to put him him into a better boat.

    He aint even sat in it yet and made a profit. Good deal that, even if you sell it without seeing it.

    One could say that's because they make huge profit on these things. As good as they seem to be I am doubt full a company can give away a boat that cost more than they have charged the customer, businesses just don't work that way.

    You must be a really big bloke.

    haines hunter have set the benchmark for aus trailer boats for over 40 years, i think they replaced his boat as sign of their commitment to quality and customer service rather than worrying about losing a few thousand dollars. 6000 is nothing compared to the harm done to the brand if they did nothing.

    Hi, Had a look at the YouTube link, different l must say, looks like fun thou. Your question did you mean to say, Is it one that l can take back to the dealer if it dose porpoise, Don't know, good question. Will ask

    They are water testing the boat before it leave QLD, So l don't think that they are going to send me a dud again.

    Regards

    Wheelybin.

    All should be sweet, if the new one starts to porpoise, I think you will be declared to have 'sexy fingers', and everything you touch is automatically ****ed. :p Here's hoping for a happy outcome, they have certainly bent over backwards to rectify matters.
