I am really surprised Hunter agreed to do anything. If you stored a cast iron bathtub outdoors, let it fill with rain and snow, and then let it freeze, it would crack to bits too. That's what seems to have happened to this uncovered, unsupported boat. If it's had nine years of this treatment and hasn't fallen apart, Hunter should be commended for building really tough hulls!
