At least that's what the salesman kept saying! LOL

First pic is the stbd flair showing panel compression between #1 strake, through #2 and into the chine.

Second is the same panel port side.
Still bad but no where near as bad as the stbd.
I feel sorry for the owner but at least he has got the right salesman on the job. How about this quote? "Well this guy walked but that's OK, most people wont survey this boat" Meaning, now he knows he aint gonna tell! He should selling used Buick's.

Interesting anomaly though. As a full liner boat I cannot inspect the interior without a saw. Because percussion sounding revealed no laminate failures or gel cracks I think it was born this way. Also the panel deflection is loading off two hard points fore and aft lending credence to a lack of stiffness.
My guess is the liner offers poor support to this panel section along with the hull being pulled from the mold too hot and too soon. Perfect storm of mediocre craftsmanship. The hull joint looked like crap as well. Pretty boat though, good hardware, nice layout, sophisticated hull shape etc etc.
