I’m thinking this crack, which extends almost the length of the cockpit, will need a blind patch from the inside of the hull. Previous owner attempted to repair with what looks like Marine Tex but that was obviously unsuccessful. I’ve also got a hole on the keel. The hole in the keel will be cleaned up, filed, etc, then I can easily install a backer. The cockpit crack is tougher. Do I have to make it bigger to get a patch behind it? Or cut out hole in the keel (Shoreline method) and access bottom of cockpit that way? Thanks for your thoughts.
