try actually helping people on this site instead of just spewing your bullshit and patting yourself on the back.

plywood in NZ doesnt rot out, now ive heard everything. then again you are the same guy who says balsa wont rot out if you put enough resin on it.

something hit that or that was a void, someone filled it with gelcoat and thats not the way to fix things

for all we know that strake could be filled solid BULLSHITTING ABOUT IT DOESNT HELP THIS GUY FIX HIS BOAT.
Offer actual advice or just find something else to brag about.

OP needs to take a small grinder, clean whats there and assess the situation.

Got it. That guy is a character but really seems to be a master at what he does. So based off his method, the consensus would be to grind/sand a tapered hole around the crack from the outside of the hull about 3x the size of the crack and to layer CSM and 1708 from the inside working your way out ?

Hard tortellini ton the photos whether it was in water or road trip. Have have chunks of steel on the highway kick up into the hull. Strikes by nature are first to get hit. Ned's to be ground down to see what has happened. Can't guess from the picture. Still feel a pro can grind that down, taper, and bring it back. Should be fixable. Hard to see how you can jump to totally the boat.
