Default Hull Damage

Hi

The pics. When the boat came out of the water it was fine. The hull is just 16 mm thick so very thin.

I've cut into my boat on more than one occasion and judging from the pic's you've provided....it looks like impact damage....
the fiberglass on my ole 2700 is pretty close to an inch on the sides.....so..the bottom of the hull should be at least an inch....

I agree. Was this boat bought used? I bought a used boat and when I stripped off the bottom paint to do a barrier coat and new paint job I found a 1 ft. section repair. It was obviously impact damage. You couldn't see it beneath the bottom paint. I had to have the repair itself repaired.

While a 2006 boat I am the first owner so we purchased it as new in 2008. Being the first owner Maxum has paid for the repair. Needless to say it takes a while to fix. Its now mid summer and the boat has been out of the water for 3 weeks

Today again is a perfect boating day but no boat for us.

well..I'm sorry your boatless for so long...a good fiberglasser can have it repaired in a few days.....literally...I've seen a good glasser grind it down...mix up the resin, have it laid up...applied ..it will set up in hrs...then sand and grind it to shape...apply gelcoat...sand and polish..the only hard part is the black hull coating....that takes a bit more of application...

if your still out of the water and not getting any satisfaction with your present glasser...I'd ask for a different fiberglasser....but that's just me cuz I really don't know what your situation is out there...from the photo's you've provided...the damage looks like impact damage...not malfunction of fiber glass....US Marine guarantee;s the hull for something like 5-10 yrs....

That has to hurt, i can feel your pain. Never have had hull damage but have had a blown engine that kept me off the water for a good part of the season. Good luck and I hope you have a speedy recovery!
