thanks for all your help guys! I am going to call my dealer tomorrow. They sold the boat to the original owner and then sold it to me. They know the boat. Lets see how this works out! Since I am not the original owner, the warrantee on the hull is not in effect... A north river policy. The engines are, but not the hull. I guess I could whine about the integrity of the warrantee, but I don't know what good it would do. If something like a cracked hull is found,,,then the game is on.
