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!
