1966 C-34, Hull 21

Hello my name is Andy. I purchased the C-34 several years ago with the intent or restoring it and retiring to the Caribbean. I recently discovered a crack running down the entire length of the bow. At first it was just a hairline crack, barely visible. I decided to sand it and fill it in. The more I sanded the bigger it seemed to get. It does not appear to be all the way through the fiberglass but when I got to the bottom of the crack it is not the dull yellow of the fiberglass. It is a dark color and I am afraid that it has been filled before and re-cracked. I am thinking that I may be in way over my head. Considering the condition of the rest of the boat I am considering scrapping it. I have also read some pretty horrible things about the sailing characteristics of this boat. I had been very enthusiastic when I found it because of the swing keel on a larger boat. I thought it would be perfect for the shallow waters of the Caribbean. I have pictures of the bow in my picture albums, they were too large to post here. If you have any incite on whether the crack in the bow can be repaired or anything on the sailing characteristics of the C-34 please help me out.

Thank you all very much,
