Attempting a "fix" could spell disaster in this case. I'll try my luck as is.

Since it hasn't been leaking or swelling on you, you lose nothing by doing nothing about it. Trying to 'fix' it and causing another problem would be a lot worse then doing nothing.
I like your electrical trades saying although I don't think it applies to boat hulls!
