Maybe a boat was pulled that was not quite cured, resins, hardeners and temperatures as well as humidity adds up to quite a few variables and the uncured boat ends up with a hook. Large boat manufacturers make mistakes building hulls, anyone can, a deformed boat does not necessarily mean a bad mold or builder... not a comment pro or con on this thread, just a comment.
Echoing Fast Fred's comments really. Did I say COMMENT enough times?

My hope would be that leeway is making his boats with out the hook as he is now saying but unfortunately the angle of the photo,s he has given will not show this So is this more Rubbish that we ribsters are given.Please dont misinterprit any motive i have I have never met spoken or had any dealings with leeway the only thing a person gets fed up with is being DONE.This thread i know to some is boring but their are Princibles here and this Forum is here for our information .The name and shame thread Thats started should be used with caution as a reputation can be shattered .so sort the quality out Leeway and get people off your back or pack up

what do you do for a living??
Excellent response. So, if the customer wants to replace his boat, because it is well hooked on the port side and not the starboard, you will agree to replace the boat? I assume that this means you will put new tubes on a new hull and re rig his Opti, Etc. If for arguments sake he was worried that the time you take to do this would impact his boating season, I presume you wouldn’t have an issue with doing it at the end of the season to minimise his loss?

My Job? Oh… I’m a professional tea maker and phone answerer…..

not sayin that is the case hear, but just cuz the mold is nice don't mean thats how the hulls guna be, it is however a better bet than a crapy mold.

just to let you know the only thing that could course a bent boat (wich this boat is not) from factory is pulling early.........

due to the fact it takes 2 weeks to make the hull before release from mould i could never have that problem.

i have tested the boat in question and im happy to say it meets all the standards and is not "hooked" as you call it.

What standards are those? What difference do you accept between port and starboard running surfaces?
