According to the CEO they performed two burn tests and nothing came back out of the ordinary. He explained what the burn test consisted of. They cut two superate plugs out of the hull and place them in some type of oven. What’s left after the burn tells them If the hull was at the corrects specs. This is the short version so I’m sure more experienced members can explain the test a little better.

What he told me was they had not been able to find the cause.

Thank you! Think a lot of people wanted to know as well, good luck with it.

The dealer came and picked up the boat when it happen. They brought it back to EMC and Crevalle came up the next day and picked up the boat. ECM took the motor off the boat and that was shipped to Crevalle days later. When Crevalle finished replacing the hull they put the motor back on. That afternoon they had to remove it to put the correct SeaStar on it. The following day it was delivered to me.

So, for all they know, their standard transoms correctly constructed according to their own specs sometimes might just fall apart? "It happens"?

That's the "gist" of it...

A burn test is really just a method to deconstruct a laminate. They burn off the resin to check the resin ratio. From there they can go through the various layers of laminate to check fiber weights and orientation.

Very few boat builders are really equipped to perform the tests accurately so results may vary.

Test samples are usually sent to an independent lab.

Gotcha thanks.
Hope you get the troubles behind you and end up with many trouble free hours of use, you deserve it after all this.

No I don’t want to debate you offline as you invited me to do in your PM. You’ve come on this thread and made these stupid comments with nothing to back them up. What makes you think I have time or the interest to “debate” anything with someone that has zero knowledge on what has transpired from day one.

a private PM for an invite to debate the issue? lol get the F- out of here!

Do you have to drain the oil to ship a motor?

Hmmm, that's weird, I quoted a ono loco post asking why the oil cap was off and his post disappeared?

I have owned a 2016 Crevalle 26 for almost 2-1/2 years with absolutely zero problems. I have taken it offshore 20 miles probably 10 times with no complaints. I have been inshore fishing and cruising with my family a lot. I have owned all kinds of boats thru the years including Scout, Grady White, Boston Whaler just to name a few. This has been the best overall boat I have ever bought. I am not a engineer so I have no idea what caused that to happen to that particular boat. I am sure Crevalle is going to do whatever it takes to figure it out. I actually went yesterday and looked my transom over inside and out and not a sign of anything. Looks like the day I bought it. Now I only paid a little over 100,000 for mine but its still a lot of money. The boats are very similar with the exception that mine has a 300 Yamaha and no power poles. It will be interesting to find out what might have caused this failure but people need to be patient. Crazy things happen and that's why you research the problem and keep it from happening again. I would think you would have heard other problems if it was something on all of their boats. Just my two cents. The boat and Crevalle has been great to me.
Out of curiosity are your livewells glassed to the cap. I thought there were people that while using the livewells in rough conditions the water was getting in the bilge. I had a boat 10 years ago from a well known and respected custom builder and my livewells were not glassed to the cap. They foam sealed it but not to my liking.

I will take a good look tomorrow and try and get some pics. I will say I have never had any water get into my bilge area from livewells that I know of. I run both wells all the time and the first thing I check when I return is pulling the plug to check for water. IT has been completely dry every time to my surprise. Again I am very happy with everything about the boat.

I can't imagine buying a $200,000 sports car, having the rear chassis fall off, and the manufacturer being allowed to simply bolt the chassis back together and throwing a few extra parts at it. Not to mention having the car returned with less than half the oil in the engine & the manufacturer CEO saying "let's go for a ride!"

This is only allowed in the mass produced boating industry.

yeah at first I wondered why the oil cap would be removed but then figured that any rigger worth a crap would probably check the oil before firing it up..

Any competent boat owner or operator would make it a habit to do so.

I know nothing, as I sit here holding my spec sheet from my custom order....lol. Just because you slung $200k for no reason doesn’t mean you are the only custom order.

Also, I have never PM’d you, so you really must have gone off the deep end. So much anger because someone is calling you out on your crap. Sorry for hurting your feelings normal sized guy.

theses F300's are known to "make" oil. While there still in warranty it increases your chances if you need additional "work".

edit:

have pictures with dates on my phone to match each and every outing logged on the ecm.
