scottyt is on a distinguished road
i would wonder if whats cracking is just the over lay over the keel ballast, basicly what holds it in place. if its lead under grinding it out till lead was hit then reglass would not be so bad. this would make sense for the water part due to the over lay was probably put on when the hull was already cured so its just a mechanical bond so it would be easy to fail. basicly just the edge of the glass is lifting, i would love to see a pic from back further by about a foot to see more of the area
