ive been in one a few times... rides fine to me but im no boat junkie..

But ill say this though, if you do step over the rear gunnel onto the boarding platform to take a p1ss, make absolutely sure nobody hooks up to a fish..

By the end of the experiment, none of the original monkeys were left and yet, despite none of them ever experiencing the cold, wet, spray, they had all learned never to try and go for the bananas.


I now feel compelled to pull off a monkey & beat the sh!t out of a Back Crusher owner

The bigger models are pretty good, 670HT and 760HT both have great layouts and I would consider buyer either if I was after a boat that size.

Keep in mind the 670HT is only a 6.1m boat and the 760HT is about 7m.

The smaller models one of which is very popular are very poorly layed out and they ride like most plate alloy boats.

or is this The Five Monkeys Experiment ? :tongue:

An experimenter puts 5 monkeys in a large cage. High up at the top of the cage, well beyond the reach of the monkeys, is a bunch of bananas. Underneath the bananas is a ladder.

The monkeys immediately spot the bananas and one begins to climb the ladder. As he does, however, the experimenter sprays him with a stream of cold water. Then, he proceeds to spray each of the other monkeys.

The monkey on the ladder scrambles off. And all 5 sit for a time on the floor, wet, cold, and bewildered. Soon, though, the temptation of the bananas is too great, and another monkey begins to climb the ladder. Again, the experimenter sprays the ambitious monkey with cold water and all the other monkeys as well. When a third monkey tries to climb the ladder, the other monkeys, wanting to avoid the cold spray, pull him off the ladder and beat him.

Now one monkey is removed and a new monkey is introduced to the cage. Spotting the bananas, he naively begins to climb the ladder. The other monkeys pull him off and beat him.

Here’s where it gets interesting. The experimenter removes a second one of the original monkeys from the cage and replaces him with a new monkey. Again, the new monkey begins to climb the ladder and, again, the other monkeys pull him off and beat him - including the monkey who had never been sprayed.

By the end of the experiment, none of the original monkeys were left and yet, despite none of them ever experiencing the cold, wet, spray, they had all learned never to try and go for the bananas.

Have a lay down for halfa m8

Ha ha ha this thread is unexpected gold,
I should have called it the Crusher Un-appreciation Nautical Thread.
I'm guessing there will be a few owners biting their tongue or waiting to pop :o_0:
Sorry about the acronym :tongue:

I have. Overhyped and over priced for what they are and deliver. For comparison sake a similar sized Stabi rides slightly better than a back crusher without the hype

You either missed the whole point of the post or don't comprehend very well.

No, and they're the definition of fugly, but they're also not as hyped up as bcs are. I won't ever forget an owners honest response at the hot current tournament at Coffs years ago when I asked why the ballast was welded shut 'it's full of concrete because without it the boats a ******* heap of sh*t out there that just bangs like a bitch don't know why you vics rave on about them I'd replace it if I could afford to'... he had a 640c
