    Just wondering. So do you have an extensive background working on such hulls or are you learning as you go? Just wondering in case if in the future I have to deal with this issue again. BTW the hull is looking nice.

    over the years i've filled and resprayed cars, boats, vans, the use of carbody fillers is easy, as they are easily to sand down, but this resin filler is much harder, its nearly ready for the gelcote, which i'm going to try and spray on thru an underseal gun,

    Ah, the inner hull brace delam... that will last until it flexes off the front again.

    Please let me be wrong, for your sake.

    what inner hull brace? the reason this got scalpad, is because the bare fibres were showing at the front of the hull for a long time and water gets absorbed and tracks up the fibres, even frost may have contributed to it, so i think if i can get 2mm of gelcote on the entire under hull, it should be ok, has anybody known it to re- accur?

    yes,
    rude dawg found out that the inner hull brace on each side of the hull up under the gas tank area causes flexing of the outer hull, until a delam happens...and it looks just like yours.

    He got fired for exposing the problem...

    Don't think you can. They were seperating the inner/outer hulls to see the inserts.

    well on re-examining my hull i also had bare fibres showing at the o/s of the grate, which i belive was soaking up the water to carry the lift off, of the plys, anyway i'll finish it take it to the water nurse it then thrash it, then back to the trailer, to see for any developments, if the internal hull supports are weak (which i dont think they are) i'll redo the hull remove the goodies and sell, hopefully i think the repaire i'm doin is going to be sufficient
