I told the builder about the cracking in August 2013 and he said he would replace it. But after all this time and a lot of emails and phone calls still no replacement. So I decided to either sell as is or repair. After the cracking showed up I have not used the skiff as I don't want to cause anymore.Hope you get your problem solved soon Ted. So, the builder hasn't even offered to repair or replace?
I have no skills with fiberglass so the drilling scares me.You can stop drill the existing cracks to keep them from spreading and use as is, or repair them. I can't give you step by step of how to repair that as I am not a fiberglass man, but the joys of glass is that in the hands or a reputable artisan just about anything can be fixed.
I know they get bigger with each use and I guess that has a lot to do with them being on the transome. So if I try a repair there is a chance they will show up again in the same place.That is just a stress crack in the gelcote, most boats will get them somewhere and generally excluded from warranties. They can be repaired but will likely return.
