    Not totaled

    NInsurance paying $6000.00 to repair. Southern California shop, Performance Fiberglas is doing the repair. They are supposed to be the best. The inner loner was not cracked so hoping this will be a solid long lasting repair.
    I ran into a cable holding down barrels that marked a dredging area. ThI was at least 30 yards from the visible barrel and not going that fast...20 mph.

    I wouldn't care how good they are... I'd want a new hull... that repair won't last like the original hull.

    Take the $6000 from insurance and part out the motor and rest of the parts. Should come about to even to a new ski.

    Agreed.
    $6000 for a repair (even as extensive as this one) seems awfully high.... but hey, what do I know.
    One would think Yamaha would sell the hull and deck halves separately - and that'd be a cheaper (and safer) alternative to a quasi "repair".

    Parting out is not an option for me...too much time and work. Insurance won’t pay for a new hull, to much money. I don’t think I would win in court if I tried to fight them.

    You may not have that hard of a time parting out the motor, charger, and pump for $5k. That shouldn’t be far off from what the ski is worth along with the insurance check.

    I know someone who was in a similar situation and that’s exactly what they did and within a couple of weeks was back on the water.
