Back i 2004 I wrapped my keel-hull joint in 24oz biaxial tape using polyester resin. and then polyester paste to fair. At that time i also applied Epoxy
barrier coat to entire bottom.

Since then, i no longer had the typical C&C
smile in the keel-hull joint area. However, i do have few hairline cracks, likely from keel
flexing. I have removed the bottom paint
from the area and was wondering if it made sense to apply G-flex in hope of eliminating the hairline cracks from coming back. I believe they would be big enough to let water
in. The area is pretty dry as the boat
was out of the water
since last october.
Would it make sense to roll liquid G-flex, https://www.jamestowndistributors.co...ct.do?pid=8694
or maybe apply CSM or lighter variant of fiberglass
tape with G-flex in order to prevent these hairline cracks from coming back. usually i haul out
every year, but I'd like the option to keep the boat
in the water multiple years.
