Surf Tab Bending and shearing Hinge Pin

I am new to the board. We have a 2015 X46 that the surf plate has sheared the pin and bent the hold tab hinge. This is the 3rd time this has happened. Has anyone else had similar issues? Any fixes?
Also, starboard ballast tank has 2 cracks at the top of the tank on a raised part. I read that there have been issues on other models similar to this. Any recommendations on fixes?
Boat is used is salt and fresh water.

can you post pictures, don't really have an idea what exactly happened to your tabs

heard of at least one cracked ballast tank on an X46, which supposedly had it's origin in a false way of cutting the carpet in a crack/edge/angle

Well, that's an assumption...but it's only under warranty if it was bought new from the dealer or if the original warranty was transferred to the second owner via the official process. I have no knowledge of the OPs boat or how/when they acquired it, but have been down this path before on a two year old boat where MC said, "no warranty"...


Cmon...lemme just push one button...
