If that's the case how possible is it that solid fiberglass has gotten soft spots? He was basically doing a tap test where you could hear the difference in the sound of the hull out of water.
Needless to say he contacted the buyer last night and the sale is off. I'm really hoping that he was wrong and a normal surveyor can check the boat over correctly and give me better results.
Yes, you can have soft spots in the hull. And yes, can be detected by the sound.
If you hit a submerged log with speed, that can create a soft spot and sometimes you do now that happen because the way the boat is jumping in the waves. Sorry for the bad news.
If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the action of others to decrease your good manner, because you represent yourself not others.
