So, if the surveyors were "fooled", does that mean that the repairs were done properly?? I'm guessing YES, they were.
If the boat was properly repaired, it shouldn't be a problem in my opinion. Unless you had a lousy surveyor.

I'm getting tired of the comparison of boats to cars, boatfax vs carfax.
You are dealing with two different animals.
If you repair a mobile home properly, it's still a mobile home with a certain lifespan. If you repair a house properly, it's still a house - but has a longer lifespan.
Two different animals, both built with different purposes for their lifespan.

The boat is mine and I just listed it yesterday. This would be any easy fix for someone who knows fiberglass and gelcoat work as that was 70% of the surveyed damage. I am using this as any opportunity to try and sell to get a smaller boat (38 ft) with 2 motors for obvious reasons. If it doesn't sell in the next couple weeks I will use the ins. money and fix the boat and update everything to make it look new again and drive it. I love the way the boat rides especially at loto. Anyone interested e-mail through the ad or PM.

I agree with you on the repaired properly issue. If it is fixed, then it is fixed. Case closed.

eeasy,

You could always use the insurance money to fix the fiberglass and while you're there you can pull the middle drive out, glass that up too and pull the 3rd motor out. Tripple problems solved!

Trade me for my scarab. 38' twin motors. Fresh rebuilds. Ready to go for summer.

I have considered pulling one motor out but with only two motors it would take seriuos horsepower (750+) as well as upgaded drives. I think spending that extra $ would buy a lot of gas for the 3rd motor. I am looking for a newer (1999+) 38-40 ft with AC. I have two kids and it can get pretty hot in the cabin in July and August. Any suggestions let me know. I'm going to the OP boat show tonight to see whats new.
