Well I got to do some sanding/grinding on that bottom problem to day. Worse area cleaned up like this, about a 3" long area of damaged glass had to come out. I created a dam inside hull with siran wrap backed with painters tape and started filling with layers of mating /resin and topped it off with a larger layer of 6 oz. cloth about 1 foot square. After that ran a 6" wide layer of cloth from bow to stern along keel area. Hopefully get to flip boat tomorrow and start patch from inside if weather cooperates. Question for the group. I,m not planning on re jell coating area but pretty sure polyester resin needs to be sealed with good marine paint. Am I correct in this approach? I,ve got some paint on order from Kush Paints.

If you are not going to do it the way Dave illustrated, I would build up a big pile of glass patches on the inside that extend well beyond the damaged area.

What you show is NOT cleaned up yet. These cracks need ground out also.

They were after pic was taken Dave although not real wide. Plenty of strand matting worked in and 3 layers of 6 oz. cloth over all outside. Completed inside today grinding out , sanding and 3 layers 6oz. laid in . Looks like its going to be rock solid. Waiting on paint now from kush so that will probably be a week.
