Exclamation Blazer Bay hull issues need advice...

Hey guys I have a 2006 blazer Bay 2420 I bought it when it was traded in at my work. Well I started taking on water and almost sumk in the bay woth my family so I was wondering what was going on. I took the boat into work and noticed areas where there was round holes pushing through the hull and could tell that there had been work done in about 6 areas on my hull I took pictures and started to grind out the areas and found that six holes had been cut into the hull about 2 inches in diamater and some sort of round 2 inch pillars were attached to the inside and were patched over. I went to blazer and spoke with the owner and found out that shortly before I bought the boat blazer had done these repairs and patchwork I asked about a hull warranty and was told that the previous owner had the boat in rough water and that is why the repairs were done at blazer and since the boat was in rough water that there would be no warranty. The owner of blazer said they sold him a 2400 because it was made for deeper water and that was when the boat was traded in on a RV at my work. The owner of blazer said that he could sell me just a hull for my boat for somewhere around $8000 I have full coverage insurance on my boat but I'm not sure what my insurance company would say since the holes are from a repair to try to secure the hull before I bought the boat! Let me know know what your thoughts on this situation are with the spring approaching I want to figure this out I now own a boat that is not sea worthy for my family. Do you think insurance would cover this or not? I can't afford to pay for a hull and I don't know if my insurance will cover a repair failure and I can't sell an unseaworthy boat to someone. Thanks for you advice

Default I hate litigation but---

Blazer Bay made the repairs. Reckon they ought to be responsible for the integrity of the repairs?

Obviously the repairs weren't very good or they wouldn't have failed.

Hopefully others will chime in here. This is certainly not good advertising for Blazer Bay.

Wellcraft repaired a boat for me many years ago. When they returned my boat, it looked better than new. I used the boat a little longer then bought another, larger Wellcraft.

Hopefully this will be resolved. I'd darn sure not buy another boat from them.

A member on here had his transome fall off his Blazer bass boat years ago. If they didn't break the search function I'd find it for you....or it might have been on the old forum.

That makes two then.

Heard bad things about the wiring in the past but never anything else.

If something happens to mine, I'm blaming you Split!
