    +1 Works very well. When it cures, it is hard as a rock.

    it is great stuff to fill in chips, small cracks etc.

    but if you have a big crack I would layer in some fiberglass on the back side using the correct resin for your hull

    +1.

    Also, make sure you wear gloves, etc. when you work with this stuff. It's pure nasty evil and won't come off, even with acetone.

    if its a big crack use epoxy resin and glass for the major part of the crack, you can fill in any small gouges or pits with marine text...it is a great product and get hard as a rock,but I dont think it has the flexability to repair a hull crack, scratches in hull are ok, in fact when truing a hull marine text it the ticket for filling in the waves in hull. If you wind up filling in a crack take photo for us to look at...before/after..........good luck
