The article you referenced, however states:

"There were some old Bayliners and Mainships (1970's) that were badly battered, but none were broken up. A few cracks maybe, but mostly heavy gouging and battering."

That is the only reference to Bayliner within the article. There is a sort of general suggestion that he's referring to all late prodution year boats, but he never really states that per se.

OTOH, problems like this are why I bought aluminum.
