Wow, thats strange! From the pick it just looks like the worst delam I've ever seen. Ouch, sorry to see that man. Are you sure there wasn't just a crack there before and it just finally came apart?

Chuck,

The boat is at Keith's right now. I expect to speak with him tomorrow on a final price. Does not look good at all. He ground out the damage only to find that the bottom had been repaired and filled with a bondo like material and we found all the balsa core to be saturated and rotten and even full of mold. He had a moisture meter, pretty cool tool, it measures moisture through the hull. He needs to take out 6 feet in length and from the chine to the keel. I hope it will be done for the 1000 Islands.

Mad hatter,

The picture above is not my boat. That is one of Sharkey's old race boats.

Shane

Shane, Glad you got in touch with Keith. The job will be perfect and done when he says it will be done. He made an entire bottom for a jet ski for me that I bought at the auction. Never knew it was damaged. See ya in the Bay
