I'd have that glass guy look over the rest real close.

I think it is too late. Have a good look at the bottom while it is at the glass shop. Good luck!

I would get the boat fixed and invite him down. When he get's there explain that he needs to pay for it ALL. If he disagrees UNLOAD ON HIS ASS. Keep on firing on him until he agrees or until you or an accomplice are able to run his pockets.

DISCLAIMER: This is just exactly what I would do and I am not responsible for other peoples actions

either way....i dont think it's worth it to press the issue
I think I stated in my original post but maybe not. WhenI went to buy the boat, my friend Kris and I asked him several times if the boat was ever damaged and repaired. He said no, not ever. Then IRONICALLY he calls me yesterday out of the clear blue to see if I am going to be around this weekend as he will be in Lake George and wanted to get together. We chatted and he asked how the boat was. I told him about the weekend and he said that they had to fix the port sponson when he owned it. So the deal is that when I originally met him he said it had never been repaired, but yesterday he said it had. He seemed like a real honest guy and I had no reason to doubt him. I just wish he would have been forthright from the beginning and I would have been fully aware of what I was getting that is all.

No, but that is sure funny as hell. I think the guy I bought it from has far more scruples than that. I still cannot think that the guy I bought it from is that type of guy. Although I only met him that day, I really trusted him. He called several times to see how it was running and I called him several times with questions. There is something in my gut telling me that this was melicious on his part. However, it is very upsetting that I specifically asked and was told it was never repaired. From everything I have been told about the gentleman looking at it this morning and from spending an hour with him last night, he seems extremely thorough and knowledgable, but then again, what the hell do I know about fiberglass?
