As everyone has said so far, the dealer needs to make this right, is correct. Be it a grounding, improper install of the keel or ____________.

Reality is, even a $100K 30' Jeanneau, SO30i, I would not expect this kind of gap at purchase! Or a $50K Flying tiger...

I still feel, if someone has not purchased boats, they should hire a surveyor, if not, they are somewhat at fault too. BUT, that still does not mean the dealer or commissioning yard should do improper labor installing the keel etc. Someone needs to ake the issue right. AND, this could happen with ANY brand of boat. I do not feel this is a manufacture issue, be it ANY brand of boat. Whether it occured due to a hard grounding, improper install....

with this, off to work I go, back this evening my time.
