Re: Stress Cracking, The "Crealock cracks".

Crazy Fish has stress cracks in the gelcoat along the top of the aft cockpit coaming and where the cockpit coaming meets the deck to the aft.

The ones along the top of the coaming are radial in nature and the ones along coaming to deck interface run parallel to that interface. Cosmetic in nature. No leakage.

In the distant past (I bought the boat new in 1989), the cracks were repaired I believe under warranty by the Pacific Seacraft, before the bankruptcy while they were still in Fullerton, CA.

Over time the cracks have reappeared.

A good gel coat person should have no problem cleaning them up.
