Water Damage To Big Boats Causes Major Problems

Feb 29, 2008
Boating is one of the favorite American pass times in the summer months. People buy and rent them in all shapes and sizes. They can cost as little as several hundred dollars for small aluminum boats used for fishing or rowing and as much as the millions of dollars the very rich can spend on their spacious yachts.

Other than acquiring a leak and submerging a small aluminum boat, there is very little water damage that might be done to the interior of one of these. The much more expensive house boats, cabin cruisers and yachts are a whole different thing.

When these larger boats are in good shape, they can be so enjoyable to ride up and down the water in. A lot of people go out in them all throughout the year. When they are not being taken out, they will usually always remain moored in a boat slip in a marina somewhere.

Cautious boat users need to check over their boats entirely prior to being left to remain in their boat dock, sometimes for weeks or months before they might be used again. Of course, those who have the really expensive yachts, likely engage someone to do this for them, but the average boat owners will probably do this chore themselves.

Even if the boat is free of any leaking when it is docked in the slot, some times during very strong wind and rain storms, boats might be thrown hazardously around in their slip.

This could cause them to be punctured, or when enough water gets inside the boat, it can become submerged in the slip itself. Frequently the water at the slip might not be that deep and sometimes only one end or side of the boat will go under water, leaving the other side or end unharmed. Either way it is damaging.

Less elaborately made boats, like pontoon or fiberglass fishing boats, will probably not get irreparable water damage to the boat interior. Normally the submerged motor can be rebuilt. Most all boat owners do have insurance and it should pay the cost for the boat to be raised and any repair amount, if it reasonably salvageable.

Larger boats like yachts, cabin cruisers, or house boats will have a lot of articles such as wood, appliances, electronics and other features that sustain water damage and will not sensible to try and salvage. In most occurrences where the boat is heavily devastated, they will probably be written off and the owner will get another boat.

If natural elements are the cause for damage in numerous boat sinking situations, there is really nothing that may be done to stop this other than putting a boat in dry dock for the season it is not going to be used.
