What do you make of this...?
Ok, I made my 3rd trip to see the boat today and I got a copy of its last 2003 survey, which didn't appear to be too extensive. But I noticed something today that hadn't caught my eye before and I'd like to get some opinions
When I was walking around the boat and looking down the hull, I noticed shallow, but noticeable vertical indentations amidship on both sides of the hull going from the water line upward about 2.5 feet. I'd say they were about 3-4" wide and when I knocked on them with my knuckles, there was a definite lack of resonance as compared to the rest of the hull.
At first I thought it had been t-boned and repaired until I noticed it was on both sides. And then it wasn't until I got home and zoomed in on the pictures I've been taking during each visit, that I noticed both of these indentations line up with the Chainplates/Shrouds. There's a big vertical glassed in mounting bracket that can be seen on the inside of the hull where the chainplates are anchored that's right behind where these external indentations are.
Is this normal, or something I should be concerned about?
