I love this statement in the article:

"A DeFever never looks outdated. And not a single one of them looks like a giant plastic basketball shoe"

The Admiral calls the bubble decked boats "shoes" or "sneakers."

From personal experience, we looked at many Marine Traders as well as DeFever, Albin, Jefferson, Grand Banks, and others before buying our Monk. In my opinion the DeFever was a better boat, at least for me. At the time, most of them we looked at were more boat than we needed, but if I ever move up, I'll take a hard look at them.
