Hi all. I just noticed this crack and dis coloring of the hull right under the mast. Not sure how it happened, but my daughter dropped in on asphalt last fall. I am not sure as this boat is new to me. I think it takes a lot of water as it seemed quite heavy after taking it out for the first time since Sept yesterday, but I did notice the crack and discoloration before dis embarking. We used it only for the fist time in Sept and I don't remember this before that. I will probably use it for the summer and dry/repair it over the winter. Will I compound my problems by doing that?
