I don't intend this to be funny but I wonder at what point a failure like that would get noticed buy the captain.

I imagine the rpm's would drop off but it doesn't look like water would enter the hull since it appears to be intact.

Holy S**T.... Do you have some pics of the entire boat there??? This is gruesome... not what a boat builder needs to have happen in this economy... talk about cutting corners!!

I do not know much about boat building, but I would venture to guess that is not an isolated problem, or a "bad one" that got through. Not the the are going to have problems like this, but they can't exactly be built like tanks. I would imagine that you would have to question their entire hull building process???!!!??? Please correct me if I am wrong

you might think that the QC manager would have started thinking about how the factory line ended up with 50 extra gallons of resin that was scheduled into the hull?

I'm thinking the crash pumps got put to use on this one. Somewhere an expensive attorney is racking up hours. I'd hope Bertram would offer a refund on this one.

What a mess.

An excerpt from the email that the photos accompanied.....

"From the information I have, this is a 3 month old 63' Bertram that replaced a 57' Bertram. Apparently the owner had overwhelming problems with the 57' and Bertram gave him a special deal on this 63' On a regular fishing trip while going out of the inlet, the boat just started to come apart. They didn't hit anything, it just started delaminating!!"
