That's odd. Jeanneau USA is incredibly helpful with all questions and has provided me technical detail, drawings, specs and ordered parts for me several times. Both Jeanneau and Beneteau are owned by the same company.

It does look like of separated 'tabbing' caused by hull flexing, between the hull liner and the hull and the keel bolts have no rust, I will post a picture for more reference.
There is no "tabbing" or "taping" on the vessel under discussion. The liner is glued to the hull with a bonding putty. I'm not complaining about semantics, there is a substantial difference.

Taping or tabbing failure is readily apparent while the putty bonded liners have many bond areas which are simply not accessible without cutting the liner. Photo below shows a 2' X 2.5' section of liner cout out with the putty bead intact .... the liner had never made contact with the hull right from the factory. The liner was basically floating inside the hull and the entire boat was coming apart.

Re: damage after impact

R&J... posting pics via a site like Photobucket.com is a much better way than the attached thumbnails. Free to join and lots of 'space', upload your pictures there, the copy and paste the IMG CODE option (important) and your pic shows up sized for the post (unless the original is tiny) for a better view.

Your shot is a bit small to be able to really see if that's truly separation.. in any event it doesn't look too bad from here...

The bulb also looks like it's been repairedAttachment 13483

The "Keel Smile" you illustrate is of absolutely no consequence. It is quite commonplace and results for a bit of flex in the joint. There is a little bit of rust staining which is also quite routine. Grind down to the iron and treat in the manner discussed in previous posts in this thread. The discoloration of the finish on the keel bulb may be from the repair of minor damage/scraping. As the profile appears to be quite consistent I suspect it is also of no consequence. To get a better idea of whats so, pull the floorboards in the vicinity of the keel in the salon and take a look at the tabbing between the hull liner and the hull and the keel bolts. I suspect you may find some rusting of the keel bolts but nothing else.

FWIW...

Re: damage after impact

Beyond deciding whether you are willing to buy a damaged boat, you have to consider how many may ever want to buy it from you. Be careful.

Re: damage after impact

Aquaholic, this thread is almost two years old. Hopefully the OP has made a decision on the boat by now. It would be interesting to get an update from him, though.
