Yep, I think Andy refers to my tubes. They were misshapen at the bow, and with glue showing where tube fittings had been moved during assembly. They should never have been sent out in that state. Eurocraft finally replaced the whole tube set foc, and still had to fix a seam afterwards
I suppose the only thing I can say in their defence is that the tubes have been OK since.
I think that the boat will need to be something very special for that price.
Cracks around the transom can be misleading. An internal trim panel is fitted to the inside of the transom, and over time cracks can appear around the edges and over any knees that are fitted. As it is simply a trim panel the structural integrity of the transom should not be affected. Apart from cosmetics these generally are not a problem. External cracks are something else
