rxp hull cracked
well today i noticed my hull cracked, where the bend is to the turbine, near the intake grate, so i cut everything up, and so far put 3 layers of fiberglass mat on the outside (with resin( to make a new edge))
after that some gelcoat to smoothen things out, and then ill do 3-4 layers inside, so i was ondering if its enough ( maybe epoxy resin and carbon fiber?)
so my question is, will the new fiberglass be strong for afew years? (quality work)
the crack is about 3 inches long, and goes through the hull, causing some water leakage
(did not notice how this happened, didnt crash or anything, the intake grate broke and so did the fiberglass break.
and how do you guys do the work for stuff like this?
(i unscrewed the wing, put the ski on its side, with 3 V suports, and 2 supports on the V of the hull)

I put mine in the slings and used a rotary lift.

do you think 7-8 layers of fiberglass material + polyester resin ( i know cheap stuff , but never tried epoxy before)
and 2-3 layers of gelcoat prevent it from breaking again?
