Thanks all. It's not a cored hull, it's solid. The damage is more than just gelcoat-thick. I can see roving in the piece that's hanging off, but not on the surface of the hull. I'm starting to lean towards the theory that it's an old repair job pushed to the breaking point.

So long as the keel isn't about to fall off, I think I can tackle this job myself over a weekend and save a little dough. I'll get my surveyor to back me up on this of course. I'll post photos of the outcome.
