Spider Cracks
1 Attachment(s)
Hello All

I had posted this on my "newbie with a project" thread but I am not sure it has been seen!

While working on the boat I saw these spider cracks in the hull - are they serious?

I have read that these can be sanded down and painted (gel coat) etc?

Thoughts anyone?

What type of boat and where exactly are they?

Are they where a trailer roller sits or can you press very hard and indent etc?

Hi, they are close to the bow - the bottom right curve in the image is where the bow starts to rise up (if that makes sense)

You can't push them in at all!

If they are in a line maybe it hit something before you owned it.

If you can't flex that part of the hull and can't see it through a hatch above I would sand them out and gel it again and keep an eye on it.

Will do that then!
