Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Sorry to hear about your accident. I agree about calling your insurance agent. Let them look out for you. Repairing your boat properly is in their best interest.

That actually does not look too bad although it is gut wrenching. I had a launch hit and crack the gelcoat on our home and it still makes me sick to think about it.

It should be safe to move but do not do so until a surveyor has a look. Get some metal duct tape and some thick plastic to seal up the boat asap to prevent further damage from weather.

Good luck and keep us in the loop on how this progresses. Hopefully you have some friends to stay with. If you were in Maine, my wife and I would gladly host you and Riley. Our Shamus would enjoy having a friend to hang out with.
