The cracks were about 8-10" or so above the bottom of the keel. I've since ground both sides down all the way to the concrete. One side has been filled, glassed, ground, and it's ready for gel coat tomorrow. The other side still has a bit of moisture towards the bottom. It should be dry enough to glass tomorrow.

The deck repair is still going VERY slowly though.
