Re: Repair of broken hull around keel stub/ Insurance claim

If the insurance company totals the boat and pays you for it, they then own the boat. Of course they will cancel the policy! Insurance companies do not have lists of people who have had claims, that they share with other insurance companies in order to prevent them from buying future insurance. That simply doesn't happen.

If you bought a used boat from a private party it is (in most states) "as is". If you had a survey it was for your own information and was as detailed as you asked for and paid for. You are not going to get any damages from anybody. You bought insurance for a reason, use it.

Re: Repair of broken hull around keel stub

Great article. I'd highly recommend the small random orbital buffer made by Shurehold. It's variable speed and relatively small for inside cockpits etc. Sheepskin pads for compounds, and foam pads for applications like Finessit II. Rubbing compounds work best at very low speeds and enough pressure to keep the pad from spinning. Always use a different pad as you work up the scale and mark them inside with a sharpie. You don't want rubbing compound contaminating a later buff or polish.

Re: Repair of broken hull around keel stub

I also have a C&C and have the front keel bolt pushed off center, probably from acprevious underwater collision. I've tightened the bolts and Bondoed a slight C&C smile Seam crack.i've bumped bottom a few times and my yard owner hit the wall and dragged it on the pavement several yards! These lead keels are very tough! From your pics the hull took a hell of a lick and had previous damage to boot. I'm not ready to give up on mine but your damage is too costly to repair! Having paid $2200 for my 1983 boat minus the motor, I would grab the insurance money and go shopping for another! I hear the water slapping on my hull on a heel and I imagine the keel coming loose. Would you feel safe even after repairs, I wouldn't. I couldn't imagine your insurance company not writing that damage off! Good luck!
