    Default Bad day on the lake.

    I was surfing behind the boat with my father-in-law pulling me. We were on a family camping trip at a remote Lake that we were not familiar with. He didn't see a rock/shallow bank and we ran the boat aground.

    We drove the boat to the shop on the way back from the trip. So far about $1000 in brass, $3000 in Gel coat and about 3k in labor. This is just a guess from the shop. Maybe much less or more at this point. Not to mention loss of use for a month.

    Thanks. We were very lucky. I had just fallen in the water, he powered off ( as I instructed ) for the turn around and then proceeded to start to turning the boat when it went aground. The boat was rocking on tracking fins and trashing about in the waves. Engine was shut off immediately. We had 12 people on board, and got 8 of the adults off and started draining the bags. We then with the help of another boater got the boat floating again in deeper water, then held the boat next to the rock bank so that everyone (grand ma) could board again. I then took the dive mask That I now keep in the boat thanks to the "Rope incident" and dove under to check things out. With the prop in relatively good form, we idled back and put it back on the trailer.

    like i told my son after he told me he crashed my car...."that's why we have insurance". That really suck, hate to see that happen but a good repair shop will have things fixed like new and you will only be out your deductible and a little time on the water. Glad everyone was ok, could have been a lot worse.

    Looks like the damage is isolated to the tracking fins and the gel coat, if that is the case then i would imagine the repair estimate will come down. I cant see tracking fins costing $3000

    He said 1000 in brass I'm sure that's pretty accurate

    Gell repair is very very expensive.

    Just the stress cracks I had at the rub rail in 14 was 2500 and that was just cracks

    I wouldn't be surprised to see 7-10k in repairs

    You need to have rudder and engine trans alignment checked when repairs are done

    Sorry to hear about this man glad everyone is ok
