    fixing stress cracks ??

    i have some cracks on the nose of my hull from the previous owner ... i sanded it down and it seems to go down in the smc too! Im getting a paint job on this hull and dont want it to show up after i paint it or show up a month later! Whats the best way to repair this ? I was thinking sand then brush some fiber glass resion in then sand again .. whatcha all think ?

    The fact that its SMC means some sort of epoxy must be used for the repair. Usually the cracks must be V-ed out and something like MarineTex must be used to fill the voids.
