This was not a satisfactory repair for me, and after some complaining the boat was taken back into the shop where the chine repairs where grinded down. During this time large pin holes where present along the chine and the attempt to fix this issue was to use a TIG welding process in the overhead position to repair the 40 or 50 pin holes.

This welding process has clearly failed with those as the welds on the pin holes have fallen out and it appears the welding manager was correct in its complexity. I was surprised that when I suggested the boat needed to be turned upside down in order to use the correct welding position and process I was informed the factory doesn’t have the equipment to do that. Less than one week out of the factory the cracks above the door re-appeared and more cracks where discovered between the console and the steps despite being at the factory for more than 30 days. On the next use, 3 weeks later after a day on the water, after putting the boat on the trailer I noticed major buckling on the gunnels and the hull is now bent at the last frame and the metal has fatigued and the bow structure supports have failed.

The reason being 1. Fatiguing above the cockpit door. 2. Fatiguing between the consoles.

3. Buckling of aluminum both sides on the forward gunnels 4. Cracking both sides on the main chine welds 5. Failure of forward bow structure supports 6.

Buckling of the main hull section 7.

The fatigue of welds where the chine and the gunnel meets 8. The flexing of the metal between the chine and the gunnel is causing the metal to chip off.

I am the owner off the said boat RH boats and while I respect the writers opinion I have not seen any survey that indicates the damage was caused by Power loading etc

I am though in receipt of a threatening legal letter from RH boats Lawyer Mr Paul Brackstone demanding I delete all posts regarding this issue and have vicious emails from MR Phil scam that he will cause serious financial hardship on me via legal proceedings should I not obey his these demands

I am also in receipt a 2 marine surveys that compliment each other and both state that the hull failed because of poor design and Faulty workmanship by RH Boats

I attempted to bring this matter before the courts but learnt that The Parent company Ameriflex engineering is is chapter 11 and bankruptcy and my lifetime warranty is non valid because of this action

My understanding that the assets of Ameriflex engineering LLC was in control of a company called Camco which is owed by MR Phillip A Scam or mr p a cam this part I am unclear about

Non this less RH has agreed to,pay for 25 percent of the structural repairs of my boat totaling around 17500 dollars but I am yet to see a penny of that money So in my humble opinion after almost 12 months of fighting with Rh boats I have learnt the warranty issues are well known stumbling block with this company , this is hill I will die on, if Mr Cam wants to bring legal proceedings against me because he was unable to repair and 2 weeks later a 8 month old boat was in Mr Cam's statement to my insurance a "total loss" so be it this is the hill I will die on, and I love a good fight, bearing in mind I have been threatened with law suits once before back in April 2017 So is this is how Rh boat customer will be treated? Fix the damn boat and honor your warranty So yes I am a pissed consumer and no I won't delete my posts because I am a Pissed consumer

RH Boats have terrible reputation as Aluminum Boat builder, i saw the at some boat shows, lots of Bondo to hide the poor workmanship

To date almost 3 months later dispite overwhelmingly facts that have been presented to me RH Boats regarding a manufacturing defect in the construction and design of the hull

RH Boats has yet to do anything other than send me a letter threatening to sue me for the post

Worst experience ever.

I agree it looks like the boat is missing something or wasn't built right,

Will be looking at another brand for sure.

I have never seen a new boat that bad. I was ready to jump into a pro-v 14 with a 25hp motor but, man that mfg. should have taken that boat back unless I am missing something and you ran into something.
