  • Edgar L. Hull Jr. v. South Coast Catamarans LP et al

    PA - Chris D. Collings; J - Susan Criss

    Ironically, a man named Hull suing over alleged defects in the hull of his new boat.

    Edgar Hull of Tyler purchased an 18-foot Aksano F-18 water craft on Sept. 17, 2007. The boat was delivered in shrink wrap to South Coast Cats & Yachts in Kemah to have an outboard motor installed. Hull alleges that South Coast never fully removed the shrink wrap to inspect the boat's condition.

    A marine surveyor reported that the boat's fiberglass was fractured, the liner in the deck module was too thin, the body of the hull contained cracks and scrapes and drains improperly drained directly into the boat's hull.

    Hull is claiming fraud, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract, breach of warranty and negligence in duty of reasonable and ordinary care. He is seeking damages and interest.

    Case No. 08CV0236
