Oh, what to do?

Your 330 model name boat is 35’ 3” LOA  and your competitor slaps a  330 Sun Dancer label on his 33’ 4” boat. AND then, a 350 model name on his 35’ 6” boat.

What to do. You have a 350 model that has a 37’ 0” LOA. Why are yours so big?. So you look to boat beam to see how you stack up. Your 330 model has a 11’ 3” beam, their 330 a 10’ 5”  and their 350 a 11’ 6”. So there is no hope there.

In the end they bumped the 330 to read 340 and that is another some what interesting seabuddy boating business story.
