    Spider cracks = No Bueno!

    I just found these this morning. I noticed the bunkers were rubbing a lot on the chines so I decided to move them more towards the middle, lowering them in other words. Look what I found under the bunks when I moved them. I never saw them 'cause they were hidden by the bunks. Maybe this is what starts the delamination process? On the right & left side the cracks are in the same spot, obviously a weak spot. On the left side though there is another series of cracks about 8" from the front cracks. The cracks are right where the front of the bunkers are.
    78 hrs & no wave jumping. Ocean riding but no big air.
    Whatdya think?

    nope, those look more like scratches to me than spider cracks. Make sure you fill all the dings and scratches with marine tex, sand smooth and apply paint. This is the only way to prolong rxp hull life.

    I'm tellin ya, They're cracks!
    I wish I can get a better pic of them. definitely cracks. Look how they curve at a 90 degree shot. When looking at them while looking down the hull you can see the peaks of every crack.

    Those are right where the inner hull "foot" rest on the outer hull. Good luck with that!

    Take it back to the dealer and have them repair it. Those feet are punching thru.

    Progressive insured!

    I don't like that part of the sentence, "when it delams".....

    Will do! Thanx!

    Thats what I plan on doing. What are "feet"? Is that where the chine starts & is pushing trough from the bottom? Could it be from when the bunkers were slightly sitting on them?
