NRS' factory is in Mexico and the fabric for these boats, according to the description, is made in the USA. But, "American fabric, assembled in Mexico", doesn't have the best ring to it.

Our boats have been made in the same factory in South Korea, for over 30 years. Everything is done "in house", no outsourcing, including the fabric.
Can't you get it cheaper in North Korea?

Maybe if they were making bomber gear they wouldn't be making bombs?

So if I understand this correctly, hyside makes premium boats in Korea (for premium prices) and that is good, but NRS makes their boats in Mexico and that is bad.

Where does that put Aire, Maravia, and Sotar, who make their boats in the USA with pricing that is comparable to the hyside and Nrs??

Not necessarily good or bad WHERE a product is made. We were mainly discussing the marketing of the product.

I know some lazy ass American Folk that I would not want building my boat.
I want a hard worker, who cares where they live.
American made does not always equal better made.
American made does mean less unemployment which is better for America.

Me too. Like some 16 year old girl with 10 years of experience. But then again they may not have a choice as to were they live or if they live...

But it is mostly true. Very few exceptions to this one. Who builds the best nukes? That would us!

jobs are over rated. If you have a job it just means you couldn't get someone else to do it for you.
