Hey all

My Daytona sank in about 4 feet of fresh water today moored at the slip,, combination major rain storms lately and a faulty shifter bellow with a tear and the poor bilge pumps worked overtime and killed the batteries. the twin Merc's were submerged completely ,  about a foot and half water in the aft cabin and a foot of water up into the v berth on the cabin sole.

My insurance covers everything thankfully.. My question is , should I allow them to clean the interior as they want or insist  that they strip it out ie: carpet, teak , leather on the walls where it contacted the water etc.. the engines were pickled right as it came out this morning   and they are changing the starters, alternators gimball bearings etc....  But,, I worry about problems developing down the road with mold, rust in electric connctions, wood rot etc etc..  I would prefer they call it a loss and we change boats--- but then again I would in turn buy somebodys used and maybe neglected ride and mine wil have all new or refurbished mechanical components and probably run better than it ever did ????

Thanks guys

That sucks! Couple of problems with the cleaning. The vinyl on the walls is backed with about 1/4" of foam. This will act as a wick and suck the moisture up behind it on the hull sides bulk heads, etc. Unless it's all removed it will NEVER dry out. Second, If your boat is like mine, there is no access to the forward bilge areas. How can you tell if they drained properly? I would insist on full removal of all interior floor and wall covering, refrigerator replacement, and having an access cut into the forward bilge. Good luck!!

sorry to hear this--SUX!

did you ever notice the bilge pumps kinda running a bit too much? (considering the shift bellow)

how long was it since the last time you checked on it?

wow--real bummer.

i'd rebuild. too hard to replace at the cost of similar vesels. this is the notion that i come away with after every boat show i attend.

Hi Chuck

Yeah the bilge pumps started working a little overtime as of late but nothing excessive. My mecahnic was informed and decidedto remove the boat early this year to fixit and prevent any problems,,lttle too late for that though.

I had checked on it Saturday night and by Wednesday evening it was under water. Now I am fighting with my insurance about stripping the whole interior as I went today and the stench  is just horrible, mold is apparently already forming. they have not even moved yet on drying her out....

I agree the price of a new boat is too much but Iwould rather get atotal loss declared and find another good used boat then to dealwith problems every time we are out because of wood rot,mold and electrical problems that will creep up.

Hey guys

 

Boat is coming out of the shop mid next week and going into winter storage. Interior completely stripped and redone along with all the v-berth cushions.

Mechanics will be completed through the winter in my warehouse and she will be as good as new come spring ( actually better than it was before going under ) . Hope everyone has a good off season and already looking forward to getting back out on the water...
