Had he been drinking (or anything else) and did you know it before you let him take the boat?

You say he is a long time friend of 23 years. How good a friend is he? My guess is he is not a friend at all.

You say "We" got the boat on the trailer and flushed it at Auto Zone.
Was he one of the "We"?

He never gave you a clear story of how it happened.
He never offered any kind of help in the repair/replacement?

1st- He is not a friend. He is someone you know.
2nd- Ask him nicely if he intends to correct his mistake. If he says no, don't say a word and walk away never to speak to him again and fix it yourself.
