My brother sent the Bayliner photo to me. The Classic Glastron Group rags on Bayliners pretty bad.

I think this may be top 5. If I'm not mistaken this tower fills with water for additional ballast.

Here's a link to their forum of a posting by a new member asking about Bayliner's reputation.

http://www.baylinerownersclub.org/in...the-real-truth

I especially like these two entries:

All Bayliners suck! Just ask any Searay owner. Do yourself a favor; go get a Searay and you will never have another boat problem again!

Were they built to a price point? Yes. Do they have structural weaknesses? Yes. These issues are easily corrected with some fiberglass work in the right places, and most important attention to maintenance

Based on this thread, I think a top ten list would be darn tough to make.
