you could find out that the hull they had inspected was built right, as for hulls after that, you got to take thare word that the hull was built the same, and hope the Owner of the outfit didn't have some other bills to pay and short changed the hull. don't think it doesn't happen.

We are a manufacturer and I would always tell people to look at the quality of the build and not the paperwork - if there are a few comments made about build quality don't trust to dumb luck you'll get a good one! I believe Ribnet and real life ( ) are a better indicator of the quality of a boat than paperwork!
