 I bought a 83" C.C. Scorpion.10/2011. Prior to transfering title, I took it out for a test drive , It 1/2 sunk. Marine Salvage charged $ 2000. to pump it & pull it out or thier's a $ 2000. a day fine you can get from the Coast Gaurd. Upon arrival they noticed I had left Bilge running , & it was, however not keeping up with the leak or leak's.  They assumed I may have forgotten the drain plug , or it may have came out, or the outdrive boot had a major leak , for it to be taking in water so fast ? After pumping & pulling boat out . The Plug was in properly & thier were no leak's in the outdrive . However the previous owner had installed a new floor with carpeting . Drilling Drywall Screw's through the floor & the bottom of boat, with the bumper's on trailer , thier only visible if you are really looking for them , Like for reason's why it sank? Thier's 10-15 drywall screw's poking through the bottom of the boat. It could of been worse for me & my 2 dog's , luckily we did make it back to shore , we could of drowned.  I also lost alot of epuipment , repair's at $1000. to refiberglass hole's.  I'd still have to worry about Dry Rot in the wood, that's inbetween the fiberglass. A Lawyer friend advised me : The Sellar has a legal obligation to inform me of the screw's he put into the boat. This was a latent defect which nobody would have looked for without the sellar's information. Where there is a latent defect which a buyer cannot readily see, but is within the knowledge of the sellar, the sellar has an obligation to inform the buyer. Talking with him , he knew , making statement's :  I could drive drywall screw's through the bottom of a new boat & it would still float?  Thier's no doubt it would sink if left in water for a prolong time ?  After the fact of course!

AUTHOR: richard jewett - ()

 I hope anyone reading this is logical enough to do some simple physics. The diameter of a drywall screw going thru the bottom of a boat can not possibly allow enough water into a boat with a 3/4 inch bilge pump exhausting the water from within plus you would need to allow for the screw being threaded into the fiberglass  ???? Also this guy bought this boat in june and supposebly took out first time in late october when we live 2 miles from lake st. clair ???????  then calls me and askes for a refund of the boat cost and his towing/recovery fees and says Im not going to transfer the title over into his name and I need to pay the storage fees ????? He is a loon   I took the boat out every weekend with multiple people and we never sank ??? I am 1000% this was caused from user not having any business on the water I suggest he take a boaters safty course with a slice of common since use your own judgment what is true what a looser post this crap online
