Is it this stuff?

Thanks a lot to all of you and especially Chris! We are now starting the process of repairing the hull. We removed all the tree instead to make sure that everything will stick as it should.

Thanks again and have a great boating summer!!

Thought we fixed it and everything seemed fine when I inspected it halfway through the summer. When we took it up from the water the crack was there once again...

It doesn't leak through the crack, I just don't like it being there.

Maybe it is easier to remove the entire "step" and just let someone build a new one?

Grind it back and put some mat in it and then Gell over that. I'm going to take a wild guess here and ask if the crack is on the rail where internally the floor sit

That's what we tried, first mat inside the hull on the damage and on the outside, then we filled the damage to form the rail with epoxy.

This didn't work and now I'm just afraid that we would make it worse if we do something...

Actually no, there's nothing pushing on that very spot like the "leg" for the floor or anything like that.

This is tricky...

Tricky indeed, there is obviously some movement there and without a good look it's hard to second guess, I've had it in the past where I've actually taken a mould off the hull in the damaged area then cut the bad bit completely out, put the mould against it again and started from scratch, again without a look I'm pissing in the wind

Would it help with some pictures of how it looks now? It doesn't look like the damage seen on page 1 as the entire repair hasn't dropped out.
