  1. Hull was checked for moisture by surveyor and was found. My fiberglass repair shop will be cutting open to see extent of damage. Can't wait for that report. My question to Chap is how this can start happening when it was 7 yrs old.
  2. What is wet slipped?

    1. Futzin'


      boat parked in a dock slip, in water, not on a lift.  Handy, but hard on the hull over time.

  3. Boat is a Finger lakes boat and the Thousand islands. And what is wet slip?
  4. First 4 pictures were patched last spring. The 5th picture is what I found after last season. Had an estimate done by a fiberglass specialist. Insurance had a surveyor inspect and concluded that there was no sign of hard impact. There was moisture in the floor which caused internal damage. Little did I know last season that delamination was starting. I now am more knowledgeable on what it is. We beached it occasionally on a sandy beach. So I thought it was something that we did. Surveyor stated that that was not the cause. Delamination is what cause it. My boat repair guy will be cutting into locker floor to see what lies below. We are the 3rd owner of this boat which is why warranty is issue.
  5. Unfortunately I am not the original owner.
  6. I have a 2008 Sunesta 224 that has delamination issues that we noticed the end of the 2015 season (7 yrs old). Had the spots fixed last spring. Noticed a cracked hull at the end of last season. Had it looked into and am now up to $12,000+ in repairs to fix. All due to delamination. Have had to 2 other supposedly less substantial boats before doing the same boating that we do now with no hull issues. I am baffled as to how a hull can start to deteriorate in 7 years.
