Humber question?

Hi All

Im currently looking for a replacement boat and used Humbers keep cropping up! Were there ever any years when build quality was suspect or questionable? Also I have not looked too far into it but why do they now offer to 'Sell' extended warranties when other manufacturers have them as standard? Not a very good advert for their product surely!

Any advice welcomed
Hector.

Pakistan getting turned over by the England attack is probably getting more of my attention to be fair.
