you bring up some good points and i thank you for that. :thumbsup: he was claiming that once it his the "black" mark that there are chances of leakage. is that true or not? to me it just looks like one layer of paint .. then i'm assuming the inside is fiberglass which in the automotive industry as far as i know does not cost $600 for something that small.It's only $600.00, take your chances in court! Depending on the age and amount of use on the ski, that could have already been weakened and damaged and when you were riding it, it could have come off assuming that you didn't hit something yourself and actually damage it.
thanks for all the helpful information you've provided me.:thumbsup:It's hard to say from just a picture but if he had to redo that little hole professionally, it could be kind of costly because you have to re fiberglass it, gel coat it, primer it, paint it, clear coat it and I think there is one another coat of something that they put on after that but in all honesty, that hole looks old and not fresh. Look at the discoloring around the edges of it. If it was new, the edges around the hold would be bright white. I put a very small hole in the hull of my stand up about 8 or 9 years ago so I know this from experience.
