I feel like we've seen this exact damage in the last week or so, anyone remember the other thread with similar looking damage?

Op, sorry to see this buddy, glad you guys are insured, hopefully everything will come out right for you guys.

That stinks. I know about a father son project becoming a total loss. It stinks but think of it as a new opportunity to have a experiance with your dad.

i agree with Raybo somewhat. The boat is toast.
But water just doesn't get into solid hull. this boat was doomed to failure before they laid the first layer of biaxial. the dry mat you see means the guys who were laying up this hull were skimping on resin. at that point theres a good reason to suspect the hull has more problems.

There is a list of errors but the straw that breaks the boats back is when the foam let’s go from there it’s just very thin not great glass, not due to water “getting in”

Does this occur more often in "chopper gun" construction boats?

That is horrible. Sorry to see that happen to anyone. Hope you can get an ins settlement, buy her back for salvage, and find a good hull. An older Proline might be the ticket.

I’m not a fiberglass expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Why do I see dry chopped strand fibers. This looks like a defect in the manufacturing process. I agree with Philgorp on this one.

Is Angler Boats out of business?

Heres an old post from a friend that tried to send his out for repair, big waste of money. This pic was just after the initial discovery.

Im sure Rickski can tell the better story than I.

I'm not sure insurance will cover this. They do not cover manufacturers defects. If you hit bottom, yes. Still give it a shot.

I had a 2002 Angler 204 that suffered some very similar damage. Pictures of your failure look very much like mine. I'm in New Hampshire. Paid a shop that claimed to build heavy duty boats repair it, only to have the repair fail 25 miles out, a week after the repair. Glad the bilge pump kept up with the water, and I had a buddy boat fishing with me. The buddy boat ended up following me to the the harbor entrance even though it was way out of his way Took it to another guy and he found that the stringers delaminated from the hull. The only way to repair it properly would have been to remove the top from the hull and get to it from the inside. I ended up taking the motor and putting onto another boat. The rest got sold real cheap. I think just about any boat can be repaired, but that is a very labor intensive job. I'd have a reputable shop quote it. Please check to verify stringer to hull integrity. On my 204, you could push up on the hull and clearly see it wasn't attached to the stringers. Don't know why the first guy didn't pick up on it, but his patch job almost had me testing the O-Shit plan none of us want to every have to do. Reach out to me if you want me to send you the pictures I have.

Friendly reminder that insurance might cover freezing water, they’d probably cover hitting something in the water, but they definitely aren’t going to cover “boat fell apart on its own”.

You should drag it to a shop for an estimate and ask them to help figure out what caused it.

Thanks Willy. That thread does have the picture. You were with me the day the repair job let go. To bad the fishing was so good. Made the trip back to Gloucester Harbor even tougher. Thanks to our buddy from Boston who put a mess more miles on his boat that day, and didn't get back to his slip until after dark.

Good luck. My boat looked a lot like that. Insurance company said something about hull defect and didn't pay a cent. I sold the boat for the value of the trailer and motor. I hope you don't have progressive.
