Fixing crack in duroboat
I hit a wave very hard at the stern of boat on a stormy day in the ocean and a crack 25 inches long was the result. I was thinking about putting a sheet metal plate in at first but I it seems I could not get it flush due to it being along a keel flange(not sure what it is called). I do not want to pay big bucks on a welder if it will just re-tear again. The culprit seemed to be a bit of electrolysis mixed with a loose frame permitting flex. Thought of JB weld or similar as well. I would be happiest with a plate some how covering it though just not seeing this possibility.
By the way I did just drill holes on the termination of the crack.
Thanks for any info.
Don't weld on the Duroboat. some areas included sealant and plastic key either of which might melt and cause a bigger mess.
