Default I think I may have cracked stringers????

I'm thinking I may have a stringer problem. Kchotboat and myself had done some glass work along a strake where we thought the previous owner had put it on some rocks before. There is 3 spots and the are evenly spaced out on the port side. After running on a very rough LOTO this weekend two of the spots have cracked again.

I guess my question is will Insurance cover broken stringers? If I try to put in a claim will I be canceled because of the damage and not insurable and stuck with a broke boat. I have heard rumblings of stringer problems on a model of Chris Craft I have a 210 Scorpion. Is this the problem child?

Any info would help, Thanks.

if you can prove "collision" damage, then the stringers can be covered. Otherwise, I doubt it.

Depends on how you and your agent can spin it.

Boating at LOTO is like a collision sometimes

If the previous owner had the collision, then you don't have a claim on your insurance. You may have a claim against the previous owner for concealing or non-disclosure of a defect. But if it could have been detected in a survey and you didn't survey, you are probably out of luck. Talk to the previous owner. Maybe he had the boat repaired at a shop and the shop may cover its work if its not holding up.



Good luck.
