“I’ve been responsible for maintenance and repair of a couple of Bay shells for several years now.  Both are popular boats and go out of our boathouse nearly every day.  I'm impressed by how well they are holding up. The only damage has been from people rowing into large hard objects, and that's been quick to fix.”
