Sorry this had to happen. Good luck with the insurance.

A friend sunk his Moomba, rebuilt the motor and it is still going 3 years later.

So you hit this tree, which pulled the front skeg off. Did the skeg pull out part of the hull with it?

Well, I hit something underwater in July. My insurance is Boat US. I had damage to the strut, prop, and the rudder was ripped completely off. We took on water but NOTHING to the extent you did. We never had water above the carpet. My estimate didn't include any electrical, engine parts. But they did have to pull the engine to repair the hull then re-install. I'm still a little worried about future issues because the bottom 1/3 of the engine did have water on it, but I've asked a dozen times about this and my dealer doesn't seem to think it's an issue.

You have much larger problem. I would probably push to total it. I know it's a shame.

We didn't pay for a tow, but my insurance would have covered one if we did.

I'm sure it CAN be fixed, but like you, I'd push for a total loss. Wouldn't want a sunk boat back.
Good luck in your pursuit there. Glad noone was hurt.

Yes, he did have insurance. They totaled it out, wrote him a check and let him keep the boat.

Not sure who his insurance was with.

I think you will be good either way. If they total it awesome. if the don't, you weren't in salt water and you really have minimal hull Damage. Motor, needs to be drained and flushed with replacing your basic electrical components. I think you will be okay. From what I can see, I'd estimate about 5,000 in damage... So it depending on what else is trashed, I think it will be hard to have it totaled... you'd of been better off to let it sink...

Sorry for you loss though, thats terrible. I just hope everyone is okay.. Could of easily been worse. Uncle hit a sand bar in the red river last year in his 04 xstar.. a few people were ejected and one person broke his ribs and kneck when he flew from the back cover and hit the windsheild. he is okay now for the record.

I agree, the best way to guarantee it would get totaled would be to have let it sink. You saved alot of wiring/electronics by towing it to land, which will probably be the difference between total and repair.

Then again, the fiberglass can be repaired and the engine rebuilt to basically new, so it isn't the end of the world. I'd try to get the interior carpet replaced as well.
