    Re: Okay - I need some feedback; boat issues

    I've heard of hulls being replaced and rigged from the old boat. Thats what I would demand. Take it out on Ontario and "loosen up" the repairs. I would have your lawyer contact the factory and bring up the loss of resale value, liability for injuries from a hull failure, liability for enviromental damage from a sinking etc. If warranty runs out and a problem persists that warranty has tried to fix several times, that particular problem should still be covered. Ride them and don't settle for less than a new hull if that is the only fix. Have you had Fast Forward look at it? Matt and Scott could give you good advice as to what the proper repair should be. They are the only ones allowed to touch my boat. Good Luck!

    You aren't related to Bill Zahn by any chance? I understood that his son went through the same problem with a 29 Outlaw. I could be wrong, but I was led to believe that Baja gave them a "New" (new hull?) boat.

    Good Luck.

    Re: Okay - I need some feedback; boat issues

    Another thing you can do is find one that has had no problems and Shoot that hull with a ultrasonic thickness checker for a base reference and then check the same areas in your boat.. That way if there was a major ERROR Aaahh like something missing you would have the proof

    Avoiding shooting the repairs of course..Personally sounds like a Serious shop related problem as in the laminate missing or spliced improperly..Resin not up to it's Barcol spec..

    These thickness testers are common I have one with Video BTW Engine guys have them also you just have to change the velocity.

    In closing a fiberglass repair done to industry standards IE scarf ratios and etc is stronger than the parent part ;LOL as long as you have something to work with..

    Be careful with it I do not like the fact that is is working open

    Safe Boating and My Best Regards..
