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

If something happens to mine, I'm blaming you Split!
Yes I have already had the whole boat rewired the connections were not water tight so I had to redo them

Have you spoken with your insurance company? I would at least ask and would not volunteer any info I didn't have to give.

That's what we pay it for.

I have not but I run a collision shop and I know how the insurance companies are they will want to know what caused the holes and I'm not going to lie to them and if they are smart they will know that it had been repaired also I don't want to pay higher premiums because of a repair failure but that's just me.

I would want a better explanation on why blazer is not responsible beside that boat was in rough water seems to me if the fiberglass is delaminating it would be from shotty repair work.

I know Keith to be a pretty reasonable guy and in all of mine and my friends dealings with him he has been nothing but fair. You are talking about a 2006 hull that had some issue due to some kind of possible unknown abuse or failure and at the time of repair the best path forward for the boat and owner was some kind of a patch that had an unknown life expectancy on it. You purchased said boat that was received in some kind of trade...and you are blaming it on blazer boats? Who in my opinion offered you a pretty fair deal on a brand new hull?

I personally know of quite a few fine upstanding members and charter boat owners in the area(and on the forum) that have sold some royally screwed up hulls of various manufacturing companies and ultimately what it boils down to is the one with a 12 year old boat - the current owner that took the risk on buying said boat - is the one with the problem on their hands. Not the previous owners(as much of a shishter as they may be) and not the manufacturer. And I'm pretty sure that if you look on the warranty of pretty much any major boat manufacturer you will see that the hull warranty is not transferable to the 2nd owner.

Well buddy blazer is a transferable warranty but that is against the point to repair a boat and let it leave your shop is a liability on you I know this because I manage a rv collision shop if you knowingly do a patch job that could put the owner ato risk of being injured or having a vessel sink or patch up a boat for the owner to sell since you are selling him another boat then you are taking the lives of the boat owner into your hands and it is wrong..... you cannot do it it is a liability and Keith is a great guy but the repairs that were done to the hull should not have been made that then makes an unsafe vessel!!!!! I'm not trying to bash Keith I'm am here simply to ask for advice! Not smart responses about a 12 year old boat ..... if the boat is 1 or 25 years old no repair should be made that makes the boat unsafe! Since you have so much to offer what do you think an insurance company would do about this I really don't want the insurance company to try to sue blazer the previous owner of the boat and Keith both said that blazer did this to to boat. And I have had to repair campers that were 12 years old regardless of the age the repairs were not made 12 years ago and I had to repair units that were not repaired right and the insurance company went after the previous repair facility. That is nothe what I want. What is your input on that buddy? I'm not talking about a hull warranty I'm talking about a bad repair
