By components you mean my motor, electronics trolling motor etc? Should I take it up to the local G3 dealer?

I guess I'm giving a hard time understanding that if I paid 10'600 cash two months ago how am I going to find a new similar hull for the value of the current 2010 model hull. I mean it's not like they can just build a new one at the factory. And a 2018/17 model is probably more than what this is worth. I guess I just feel deviatated and angry that my poor boat that was in mint condition is gone for good and I'll have to put this nice 50 yammaha fouratroke on a ugly Jon boat hull

You aren't going to get a new hull for what yours is worth. You'll be paid for a 2010 hull.
That said, the $10,600 you paid for the rig included the motor and trailer. Those are not going to be included in the claim, so you are not going to get the full price for the entire rig, but you aren't replacing everything either.

My comments may not be 100% accurate, but that is how I understand the insurance system. Your first step and the one that will get you accurate information is to talk to your agent since he is ultimately the one who will go to bat for you.

If you don't agree with their reimbursement, you can always contact a lawyer and sue for damages.

You are fortunate she has insurance. We had 2 close ones Saturday on Texoma. I would hate to see the aftermath of a jet ski hitting a 22' CC at any speed. I have witnessed 2 jet ski wrecks. One involved 2 jet skis and I cheered as I watched them sink. Of course only after seeing the people were OK. Other one was an idiot on a jet ski who turned full speed in to the side of a 18' open bowrider. Happened in a No Wake zone. Fortunately he did not make contact as he sailed over the bow. Jet Skis are a nuisance both at the ramp and on the water.

Only advice I can give is from personal experience with a dopey squirt bike driver:
Go ahead and lawyer up, if you don't you'll wish you did.

I would think they would total the boat and pay you your original cost. That or pay twice as much to try and fix it. Good luck.

I have only one time seen a boat totaled that didn't include the motor and trailer and that was because the customer upgraded the motor after he got insurance on the boat.
Depending on the insurance company paying the claim they should write you a check everything. I see a totaled boat come through my shop about once a month and this is typically the way it works

Call me if we can help.

One other thing that needs to be mentioned that the accident needs to be reported to Texas Parks and Wildlife. Any boating accident that damages someone else's property with more that $2,000 damages should be reported Per TP&W Code Section 31.105

Texas Parks and Wildlife

Been a long 3 weeks but after the adjuster and a reputable local aluminum boat builder/repair shop looked at it they both agreed its fixable IF G3 will send a piece of the extruded aluminum gunnel.
