    Boat fell off lift and smashed some rocks.. What are your thoughts on this damage ?

    I will drill holes and see if the transom is rotted aswell as do a stress test on the stern to see if the transom has flex when I put weight. I'm not afraid of pulling the stern and motor. I've done it before in a couple hours.

    Boat fell off lift and smashed some rocks.. What are your thoughts on this damage ?

    So the water came in over the side of the boat as I tried to push it back out into the lake. I would say the boat filled up 1/3 on the angle. We got it turned around and pulled the plug.

    Hi , Sadly the water came up 16" over night combined with a bunch of white caps which resulted in my boat coming off the lift and washing ashore. These two spots are the worst of the damage. What are your thoughts ? Thanks!

    Inner transom plate price.

    So my mechanic is changing my inner transom plate because it's cracked. He told me that it is regularly 700$ new but that he got me one for 300$. Is this a normal price or is he taking me for a ride? That's 300 Canadian dollars btw.
