Guilty as charged. The L Series got off to a great sales start but even those who loved their boats had a long list of things to be fixed. Reality is it was introduced before truly ready and never caught up. Then two entirely different engine approaches on the 59' and 65' with pods on the 59 and traditional on the 65. Just poorly executed. One other point and that is as many times as the employees in the Sykes Creek plant were jerked around, they never could get them back on their side. They never believed management and knew deep down the plant might be closed on them again. Whoa......it's deja vu all over again.
