I could use some help. I have a 72 Venture 17 that is in process of becoming seaworthy 'ish' again. Latest project is to repaint the hull. I've sanded off the existing bottom paint and came across this (see photo). Sooo, the boat is on a cradle in the garage. I'd like to avoid flipping it over if possible. My thought is to epoxy the cracks, prep, primer, paint. Here's the newbie question: do you think thickened epoxy would fill the crazing? If I flip the hull, I'd use 105/205 unthickened that I have on hand. I'm afraid using unthickened material overhead will just make a mess. What do you suggest?
Edit: any thoughts on mixing in 406 or similar and squeeging it into the cracks?
