Some of that damage must have occured during the salvage. Maybe they dragged the boat to shore instead of floating it up and towing it in????

I know I've launched off six footers in my old 89' 311, and all I got was a good "teeth jarring".

That looks like it got dropped off a very high bridge.

I would of thought they would of at the very least used a lot of Plexius and through bolt the seam. I just see a little bit of the bonding goop and no through bolts.

notice how the glass seperated from the core...

Hard to believe a cored hull is as strong as a full layup. I've seen a lot of pictures showing seperation between the coring and whatever layup.

Should have bought an old Fountain. That would NEVER happen

Are they sure they didn't drop a cruiser ON it?

Appears to be more to the story, then the reader's Digest version on E-Bay. Can't believe all that damage came from hitting a cruiser wake. My old Formula could take more of a beating than your body could take.
