Let it go and let Fred take a look at the repairs. He may have other ideas for ways to sink money into the hole. God knows how simple repairs and improvements turn into major overhauls with him!!

Make sure it's fixed soon, since I plan to drive it in the VERY NEAR future.

I picked ask but do not push it. Lets put it this way. How many cars are sold each day that have been in accidents. Hell even BRAND NEW cars have parts replaced on them and repairs done all the time. The dealers will never tell you about them so...... I am sure that there will be lots of things about my boat that I will not remember to tell the buyer. Some times you just forget, it could have been a honest mistake. If you should be pissed at anyone you should be pissed at the person that did the shoddy repair. There is no reason for the repair to not be as stong as the rest of the boat. Make sure your new guy knows what he is doing and you will be fine.

Shane, I got burned on my first boat, I bought it not knowing that the boat had been repaired and eventually the bottom caved in and the boat was worthless, I was really dissapointed because it was my first boat and I did not have it that long when it happened, I chalked it up as live and learn and hoped the guy that sold it to me would someday get his. It turned out that it is happening, the guy who sold it to me is the guy that got taken by hawk power that is always crying about it on this site. I however would never do that to someone so I sold the boat to a dealer for $700 and they knew exactly what was wrong with the boat because I told them. I have too much integrity and could not live with it on my concious to stick someone like that. so i guess the moral of my story is you should let it go because you won't win, but you can hope that someday he will get what he deserves. But you have to admit you beat that thing for years, that was one hell of a repair job.
