Yes, Marc and such a shame since they are handsome little ships. And they had advanced features which if properly installed and employed would have made them impressive performers. Let's hope that a lesson is learned here and not forgotten when 20 years have passed.

A real scandal within the USCG community.
After streching them, they found out these conversions were useless even in rivers because they became so unstable. A real waste of the taxpayer's money.
