Thays hilarious, I'm sure your buddy laughed when he saw that quote. Like someone up top said in needs to be compounded and rela-waxed. For 4500 he can have it painted with gold leaf. The boat should have been sold as is and the buyer should have either looked it over first or been ok with whatever condition the boat was in.

Scam job!!!!! Tell your buddy not no, but HECK NO!!!!!!!!!!

But if your buddy is determined to pay the $4500, I volunteer to be the courier to deliver the cash money! Just let me know the date, and I will be at your buddy's house to pick the cash up for delivery up north!

Oh, by the way, tell your buddy there is no charge for my courier service!

Buyer is being a dick. Tell him the offer to repair is the cost of repair is to buff out the scuff. Nothing more.

I was going to say if its around here Ill put my eyes on it and see whats what

i cant tell in that picture if its just dusty black gelcoat or metallic black paint, but like I said if the boat was already painted that can be touched up for hundreds not thousands
if its gelcoat, which I suspect it is, that would polish right out.

i dont even know if I would bother answering the guy back because if I did it would involve some obscenities lol

Well, in the buyers defense, I am sure he sees an opportunity to get $4,500 off his recent purchase, which he can then use to insure and fuel his new toy... not much of a defense, but that's the best I can come up with.

Any gelcoat guy worth his salt would've just quoted compounding that and been done with it. The buyer had to have asked for a full repaint quote.

Pretty DB move.

The buyer is an a$$hole. That looks like shipping damage to me if the shipper used the straps in the damaged location. I would tell the buyer to go fu#& himself in not such a nice way.

Here's another view, maybe you can see if what kind of coating it has.

This is why you always put on the bill of sales AS IS / WHERE IS and never off to pay for anything once the item leaves your property. To many people out there trying to take advantage of everyone.

Can't really blame the carrier. They didn't put the straps on, they just came to the storage, picked up the boat and went. I guess just like can't file UPS insurance claim if you didn't wrap the package right. All in all, we just wanted to see how much it really cost to fix the scuffs before responding. My buddy is too nice of a guy and doesn't talk much. In case there's feud coming up, he's not going to be in the upper hand.

Well, that sucks for your buddy. Even if it were your buddy's fault, theres no way that little piece of damage should account for a new paint job on the whole boat. The buyer is just takimg full advantage of his kindness.

wait a second, its a 25 cobalt. That's gelcoat and it looks like its in great condition.
This guy isn't trying to get his boat painted, he's trying to scam your friend and get $4500.

I just polished out WORSE scratches in my boat last weekend; some compound, wool pad, and a buffer. This is insane!
