I came across a 'discussion' on youtube comments saying the Honwave is poorly built in China and the only SIB that is still glued together. The owner reckoned it started falling to pieces after a few months. Others were saying its because they are designed as tenders and not pleasure boats.
Im yet to use my Honwave 3.8 air deck but it looks great to me. The old Achilles I had incthe 80's got used for years every day incthe summer, and in all that time got one puncture when I hit a sharp edge on a pontoon. Apart from this moan about cthe Honwave I have seen nothing but good reports.
One person did say it may have been an import or copy, Honda always lead us to believe their attention to detail is 2nd to none.
Tell me its a great boat and will take years of abuse
