Hull Damage from engine mount.

Went to wash the boat after this using it this weekend, as I was cleaning the hull I discovered a bolt from my engine mount has gone through by hull.

No idea how this happened, any thoughts?

Also no idea where to begin on trying to fix the issue, the inside engine mount looks completely fine..

Boat is a 1987 Prostar

This does seam odd.
On all my boats The engine mounts to a Aluminum Angle that bolts to the Stringer.
I can't think of any engine mount that bolts vertically to the hull.

Almost looks like it came through from the outside the way the gel is cracked. Could it have shot up from road while trailering?

Bolt/Hole

Bolt from trailer or cradle bunk entered from outside?

It looks like you have it sitting on a cradle... Was it pulled from the water by a fork lift, and is it possible a bolt was sitting on the fork? I tend to agree with Mark that it looks like it came from the outside in. Seems to me that a whole like that would have let a lot of water in the bildge as well. Was your pump running more than usual?

Thinking so, bolt head entered up through the bottom...driving on lift or bunk...Holly @^%$, thats a bad day. Do they store your boat up on a rack, and bring it down to put in the water. Maybe, to see who pays for what. I would definitely check out what the boat sits on.

Yeah thats what it looks like, maybe the bolt is from the aluminum angle that bolts into the stringer? not sure how long those bolts are..

I keep the boat in a dry locker then sling it in and out, so I guess there is a slight chance it entered from the outside, I'll double check that tonight.
