Snork, the boat is at a dealer. I'm not sure of the etiquette of disclosing problems on someone else's boat so I'm reluctant to get too specific on exact dealer/location. I may decide to pass on it, and if so it'll be up to the owner and dealer on how to deal with it going forward. I may or may not be making the correct call on that, but it just feels right to me.

Couple updates-
-Dealer fiberglass tech says the gashes are likely the result of "gelcoat voids". If correct, sounds to me like a manuf defect not detected/corrected under warranty.
-But there's also gelcoat blistering - apparently limited to the areas under the seats, not hull.

I held off on driving to see it pending further info, so still haven't seen it with my own eyes.

Does anyone know if gelcoat blistering will continue to get worse over time? (also posted in Repair forum)

I would ask has this boat ever had an insurance claim? And get it in writing.

I'm starting to think something might be going on with it. Has it been sunk and they're not telling you?
I'd run the VIN and also ask the dealer to run diagnosis on it for fault code temperature range and etc... maybe even a compression test. 100hours and it has all of this is a real bad sign. If you get push back walk away something isn't right.

My bet this is a recovery of some kind but that's just a guess.

Have pretty much decided to pass on this one. Pains me to do it because I have a hankering for an x30.
Thanks for input and advice received.

Fiberglass voids...that's a new one and a concerning explanation

Honestly feels like a 1st boat for someone that has never been around boats. Dings in areas under seats where you are storing stuff happen when people get careless putting in the anchor or whatever

Cut fabric on a seat edge could be a ski or board fin....again..somebody's 1st boat and not realizing how easy this could happen....

However, somebody's 1st boat also means they don't know to watch engine temp, use fuel stabilizer, etc...

An engine profile from the ECU and a compression test would give you peace of mind...
