Heres the damage

Look like a dockside repair?

Ouch...if it is what I think might get more complicated...looks like the crack travelled all the way to underneath the rub rail...did it??

Can't tell, but it goes down farther on the other side.

If I recall, those boats used to have a rubber rail in that lip...did they remove it or this one never had it???

The crack, vertical, on the other side is OK, can be well patched...but if it migratted undert the alluminium rub rail, it has to come off, and glassing the inside on that corner will be harder...all in all does not seem too bad...or serious....

To my eyes, the area just right of the rub-rail has seen a prior repair with something like Marine Tex. The impact may have simply loosened the patch.

The stern rub rail seems to be a european thing, because of the backing in to the dock. Over here, I don't think they make them with it. And I don't think it would have helped because they don't come up that high. It looked much worse yesterday. Today, it looks manageable.

Hmm, good point TB. It does look a little thick. Nonetheless, I think from the photo, it looks like the rail kept the crack in the open. (hope)

TB, that lip is where the deck, in one piece with the stern, glues onto the hull.

It could be that the rubber rail is gone and you are left with typical unfinished looks.

I am going to retract my earlier statement. I think the thickness comes from the area where many parts are coming together. And the crack looks like it goes right under the rail. Oh well.

Doesn't look like a dock-side repair... looks a bit more expensive and complicated than that... Any time you have multiple layers and pieces of fiberglass coming together, the cost and time starts to go up quickly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
