Default How can this happen to a brand new boat?

I cannot understand how this happens to brand new boat. I am not sure of the make but to me it looks like a Dragon? Does anybody have any insight on why a hull would
delaminate like this? It seems weird for one to come apart like this without hitting anything? Thanks

Looks like water got under the paint and lifted it...something as small as a nick could start that...Cant blame the builder.

Question Re: How can this happen to a brand new boat?

I'm just curious as to what causes it to happen? Not trying to stir a pot.

Yes, it's a dragon. Wow.
Looks possibly like a resin-starved area.

Plus that is a race boat. The stress applied to it is markedly different than a pleasure boat. And with a lighter layup you will sacrifice some strength for more speed.

Why would someone take a MYCO trailer and remove the wheels to just mount it BACK on another trailer??

And it does look like a Dragon...

Looks like it is on some type of tractor/trailer rig, using the Myco like a cradle.
