What is the deal? It seems like someone always says when talking about other brands of boats that they were "designed by one of the former owners of Boston Whaler". I know Boston Whalers are fine boats and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but can someone lend some insight to this puzzling question? Why does everyone say this about other brands of boats? Or can some one try to draw concrete lines that give credibility to this? I am interested to find out what the PFF members think about this.
