Better to rebuild or buy new

P

My son is contemplating rebuilding his 2007 Zx 190 he just realized it has a crack in the hull. Is it worth having hull repaired and putting new motor on it ? Anyone know what that cost would be or a good place to have it done ?

Shop around for new cost vs repair/DIY. Have it done in New York city? LOCAL! What state (of mind) do you live in? Da! Tony

Really really depends on the crack

Is it from hitting something? Or is it a failed rib or along a strake?

Is it taking on water? I've done a lot of hull repairs from jetty punctures or beaching

A few stringer repairs but when it's structurual you need to plan on possibly redoing more than just fiberglass and gel coat

All boats are a labor of love, major repairs are rarely worth the investment for resale IMO
