The hull is solid glass and if they rebuilt a 5 foot by 5 foot hole it will be tough to avoid "point loading". The areas of concern beyond the hull have been mentioned and the biggest is the deck. The deck is cored with balsa & plywood and there is no possible way, after being submerged, that it did not have some serious moisture penetration.

#1) What is the asking price of this boat?

#2 Do they have pictures of the repair work or the before and after. If this was an insurance job there is an an insurance adjuster out there with photos.

#3 If they are asking any more than 15k walk away...
