Schooner hope the dealer give you good advice ? I found out on mine it was only the gelcoat and not thru the Fiberglass so it was more cosmetic for me . The body shop took me up on the scaffolding to show me .

Haven't touched it since and it is still in the same condition as when I discovered it. This was over two years ago. It is not noticeable unless you are looking for it.
Thanks for the info. I'm assuming he told you to drill the hole to stop the crack from spreading? Think I'll pass on the drilling but the marine sealant sounds like a good "fix".
