    Hull repair question

    Please look at the pic below. Do I need to open the smaller cracks up with a grinder before I apply west system epoxy? My plan is to glass the back side and at the same time fill the front side with resin too.

    I do .Cut them back a bit to get any crap out of the cracks and give it a good prep before you wet it up

    styrofoam

    I did the repair last night. I used 2 layers of glass on the inside. At the same time I made some epoxy putty and filled in the front side. My new question is I had to remove about 18 inches of styrofoam from the hull to get to the crack, do I have to replace the styrofoam? Is the styrofoam for flotation or structural?
