Saga continues, turns out the replacement thru-hull they put in yesterday was NOT marelon, it's some kind of other plastic .... they're telling me this other plastic is fine, thought this was a no-no below waterline. Doesn't matter we're taking the whole thing out again today.

FishFinder,
It has to be marelon, there's no plastic substitute for that AFAIK. You should probably add this yard to the list that someone (SD?) created about experiences with marine companies.

Sounds like it's time to find a new boat yard these guys are clowns!!

The other alternative is to learn to DIY, save some BIG money and generally do a better job..

Yeah glad I was paying attention, the thru-hull they used yesterday looks to be similar to an old cheapy one I have for above-water bilge pump discharge ... which is brittle and has cracked.

BUT everything is fixed now, all marelon down there and scoop facing aft. 3rd time's the charm. She's in the water now, no leaks, job finally done right. Next time I'll DIY for sure.

Thanks everybody this forum is awesome.
