Re: Hull deflection/oil canning
Those kind of depressions are commonplace, generally due to poor blocking jobs. They seldom just "pop out" but they almost always will return to the normal shape in a week or two.
I wouldn't worry about it - worst case some epoxy filler is pretty cheap.
P.S. Captjcook is incorrect about poly secondary bonds being the same exact strength as the hull. Primary bonds are chemical as well as mechanical. Secondary bonds do not have the same chemical link as primaries - that's one of the big reasons for using epoxy for repair work.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
