Tim, Sorry to hear of your problems, When I was at the factory last week I saw there processes and materials, the ply being used was indeed marine quality and good quality upholstory etc. Have you spoken with them about your experience?? as I find them very receptive. The seat bases came ready fitted we removed them for ease of access.
Have you whats your opinion on it?? have you just the hull or is it tubed? We are having this tubed by Paul Tilley (TIDEL) Just waiting for him to call it in.
The conduit runs Straight through the middle of the boat to within 1.5, of the bow. The best way to locate is to Drill a hole in the Bilge Sump at the stern centrel to the forward virtical and close to the top.
