So my drift boat went in for bottom repairs and I was told there were a couple spots that had to be grinded or sanded down to the core material. A filler was used in those spots then glass layed over the entire bottom and finally the paint job. They told me it would last a few more years but most likely would not be repairable again. There were zero soft spots in the bottom or floor. It gets used about 160 days a year and is 16 years old. My question for y’all is are they telling me the truth about the life or just wanting to sell me one of their boats. He tried explaining to me that boat bottom repairs are like tire repairs, if you repair them from he inside out as opposed to outside in they are more durable. I have difficulty really believing that analogy. Any advice is appreciated.
