Hi nitrox, i only live 5mins from BH marine, they have been going for yrs ,i know simon & bill ,i,v been going up there for a few yrs now buying parts of them , they also given me some parts for free ,so not all bad as some think, i will ring them tomorrow & see what they say ,i do think they will do somthing about it ,as they have sold a lot of seapro boats this yr & don,t think they would want to loose 30yrs good rep ,just like to thank you all for the good advice

Sort of. Unfortunately my Avon was out of warranty so i spent over 1000 (plus some barter) having it repaired, then sold it on. Although the repair was of a very good standard, sadly i`d lost faith in the hull.

As biffer said earlier on, it needs quite a large area grinding out and then strengthening before repairing the gel coat.

Bunked trailer should stop it happening again but imho any rib hull should be well up to being trailered on rollers.
Good luck hadd. Look forward to hearing the outcome.

Good luck hard. Look forward to hearing the outcome.
Thanks cjj216 for the update and your honesty on the hull .

With the best will in the world ,the guy is I'm sure totally honest, he didn't make it, he only sold it, but because of that its now his problem...................so go for him .He has far more goodwill/pull with the manufacturer than you will ever have,you only bought one,he boat loads of them.
Best of Luck

Good news, up to bill highams marines ,taken old boat in today to be replaced with a brand new boat ,he,s going to move everything over to the new boat free of charge & will be ready next week,the new boats are from a different company tiger marines egypt & not from china, still from across the water, but if the rib is good quality i,ll be happy i,v seen one of the ribs & they look a lot better quality than the one i had,the company,s been going for about 16yrs so finger crossed should be ok, thanks for all your advice
