These are the pictures from the repair estimate. The pictures I took are too big to attach. These are the only ones included in his estimate so they are the only ones I can attach.

Without seeing how it was blocked I will reserve judgment . I have seen that before on other brands , and in most cases the hull was full of water . I also had seen cinderblocks used if one breaks the hull falls and the rest are driven into the hull .

I worked at Trojan Yacht (Lancaster, PA. Facility) and I can assure you that the hull on the meter boats were built extremely durable. We actually did a drop test to see if the material joining the hull and the inner liner was bonding correctly.
Sounds like the marina needs to revisit their storage blocking procedures...
Good Luck.

I was at a marina today looking at a boat. Every boat at the marina was blocked like this (one under the bow and one at each aft corner). There was no support of the keel midway or aft. I don't know if any of those boats ever suffered catastrophic hull failure, but I certainly wouldn't buy a boat that was blocked like that. Who knows what damage was done to the hull. I can't believe people would risk damaging a hull to save the cost of a few more cinder blocks.
