    Element XL - Never made it to the lake last week....-gctid816945

    Well this happened. Surprisingly the boat shows no damage from the side impact. It may be there beneath the surface but it's not visible. The bottom? Who knows?

    Supposed to be evaluated by an expert fiberglass repair guy who will provide an estimate or determine if satisfactory repairs can even be made.

    Has anyone had a boat dropped like this? I'd rather they total it at this point but I am not sure they will based on the insured value.

    I would want it totalled as well. I saw you posted this on the BOC FB page, too.

    I am sorry this happened to you, but on the bright side, you're okay, nobody got hurt, and everything is insured.

      Ouch. If it's anything like aircraft (don't ask how I know), they'll total it if the repair cost exceeds 80% of the insured value. Ask the repair guy to send you a detailed list of the repair costs. If it is just under being totaled, go over it with a fine-tooth comb looking for things that were missed. It the motor was involved in any way (even if it hit the ground), I'd insist on a tear-down to look for internal damage, including a post-repair sea-trial by the mechanic to be sure it is fixed correctly before accepting it.

              I didn't post any pics of the parts. I can send pics of anything you're interested in.
