Not trying to point out the obvious here, but I would thoroughly inspect the plywood behind that crack in the picture before you slap some glass on there and call it good. If there is significant amount of moisture there it could compromise the stability of your rig. And, this is a very common place for these boats to leak. And, it looks like from the picture a repair has taken place there before. Judging from the location of the damage you are about 16-20 from where the chain plate comes down into the cabin so you are probably fine. But, while you have time it would be worth checking out.

Thanks bbreith.

The surveyor had his moisture seeker all through the area, and did the hammering to the hull. He is of the opinion that there is no rot in the core and it is still solid.

I suppose only time will tell for sure!

Drake, I have the same issue with my boat. I am going to have a look under the paint this weekend. The plywood is solid throughout so I think its only minor water damage.

Please let us know what you find.
