Default Serious boat problem.

I have 4 photos but no other information re: my friend's son's boat. My first impression is that a longitudinal stringer has broken loose. Rot or manufacturer defect. Any expert willing to speculate. I don't see it as mechanical damage. I have no clue as to how old the boat is nor who built it. My first recommendation was to send photos to the manufacturer. Maybe have his attorney send the photos?

Just my opinion, Bobby, X shark what is yours. I say you are gonna have to go inside and remove everything and fix it from inside Then outside. Second choice on a dark night make a reef out of it. After removing any foam interior.

Are you certain he didn’t hit something submerged?

I’m no expert but to me it looks like a forklift blade may have made contact.

Agree with this. Looks like the trailer bunk has some damage as well.

And there's a chunk missing on the nose of the low water pickup on the OB too.

That definitely looks like human caused damage, not so much as manufacturer defect. Looking at the top of the damage, that little "tail" cut is where something made the contact and tore rearward.
It could have been during rough water loading or the trailer was too shallow when loading? Hit something while out running, boat fell off trailer and heavy equipment caused damage pushing it back onto the trailer?
Hard to know without more details surrounding when, where and how the damage was discovered.

Yeah that looks like human error not boat craftsmanship.... Too straight at the point of where the damage starts.
