Anyone intimate enough with both manufactures to technicaly compair Ocean Alexander to Hatteras? I would like to compair: Hull construction Hull shape ( ride charterististics / sea worthiness) General engineering and workmanship (referring to plumbing, piping, electrical) to compair a 70ish OA to a 70ish Hatt? I am also curious of opinions for aluminum fuel tanks vs fiberglass molded into the keel tanks which claim to created a second bottom. My observation which I don't really know are correct are as follows. I am hoping for opinions from people with much more experience than me. Seems Hatteras is building a boat with a lower center of gravity than OA. Seems that the fuel, water, black water are all lower. It also seems the engines are kept lower. I would expect this may make a better handaling / riding boat, but I don't know if the difference is significant or marginal? Seems like the pipe fittings, nipples, and supports may be better engineered or better quality in the Hatt? Workmanship on all major components seem equal however the minor details for straps, supports, screw sizes may be a little lacking in the OA?
