You can clearly see the impact point on the trailing end of the keel strip. There is no doubt in my mind this was dropped. Hopefully they do you right. I would do a more thorough review of the whole boat too.
Crazy I tell ya, our 2016 was $35k w/150 Suzuki motor, another 3 for a trailer. 22 SSRX, SPS, G buckets, flooring upgrade. Last year same boat at show was 4k more. Worse than the housing market around here.
