And you've talked to the Owner of Blazer Bay, they admitted to doing this work, but don't want to do anything about the lack of structural integrity with their work?

Looks like they installed some type of supports from the hull to the underside of the floor in the liner to give it extra support? And then if the liner flexes, it transfers the energy/inertia to a point load on the bottom of the hull? That's just dumb if that's what they did at the factory. Are you SURE that's a factory repair???

Also, looking at the glass where the holes are, that glass seems awfully thin. Looks like it would be around 1/8" thick. That seems to be THIN for the bottom of a hull in those locations. No way anyone with any structural background would want to point-load that area at all.
Yes I talked to the previous owner and I talked with blazer!

I cannot imagine the owner of a boat manufacturer saying they won't honor a warranty because the boat had been in rough water. that's ridiculous. you mentioned someone told you it should have been a salvage title. so was this a prior insurance claim - i.e. a collision loss? not defending, but asking - wonder if that is why blazer is not considering this a warranty issue? either way, I don't have high hopes for you with a new insurance claim. shoddy repairs before you took ownership most likely wouldn't be covered. I got a feeling by the time this is done the owner is going to wish he either fixed it or rigged up a new hull for you. good luck!

No I wasn't told it was a collision but of course I don't know the whole story all I gathered from blazer was that they had done the repair to the hull due to the previous owner taking the boat in rough water that was not suitable for the boat..... I believe that I was told that the repair was to sturdy up the hull maybe that the hull separated from the stringers.

Man that really sucks.
I certainly hope you can come to a fair resolution.
I would be pissed as well if this shoddy factory repair had put my family in danger. I mean if an automobile dealer does a repair to your car, no matter the age of the car, and the repair fails to the point it places the passengers in danger? I would think there should be some liability there.
Good Luck, and go talk to a lawyer.
I am not a sueing kinda guy, been an auto accident victim more than once and did NOT sue the at fault driver or his Ins. Co. Just fix my truck please.
This is a different situation, not only are you out the cost of the boat but your loved ones were put in danger by the negligence of the shoddy repair. If it could not be repaired properly then they should not have touched it.
IMHO

I agree if that was a factory repair & it was faulty I'd talk to a lawyer & let him write them a letter. Sometimes that's all it takes for them to make it right. It's worked for me before.

Yep
Spend a couple hundred bucks to have a lawyer write a letter to Blazer. Believe me they do not want a lawsuit.
I think they will repair your boat properly or maybe even replace the hull.
Ya never know till ya try.
Best of luck to you!
