Re: Found This Crack ...

I can't believe anybody didn't suggest filling it. Do what GordMay suggests and and fill with 4200, not 5200. Keep the humidity from forming any mold or mildew inside. You may even want to point your heat gun gently at it for a few minutes to make sure it is dry inside before filling. I think if that is the only crack you are concerned about, you have very little to worry about. Enjoy sailing her.

Re: Found This Crack ...

If it is still flexing particularly under sail then a hard filler will just crack again and a flexible filler will do nothing useful. As Nick points out, it looks like a knee supporting the deck so worth keeping a close eye on it. A nice big epoxy and cloth repair will fix it, but it will be tricky to get it to look neat again.

Good - Tom is traveling and out of reach of contact; we at the factory were trying to understand what could possibly the root cause.

Although this crack has been there for some time and doesn't seem to be getting any worse, I would recommend that it be repaired. You will need to clean away the paint and fractured glass. Then patch the area by filling the crack with epoxy putty. Then put fiberglass cloth over the area. Once it is dry, you can sand it and paint it. Tom Schock
