    Default crack in hull question

    I found a three foot hair line crack on the hull of my sanger super jet in about the middle of the boat right along a chime...... the boat needed a new floor when i got this thing... i replaced the floor and was wondering if any of you have had the same problem and how you fix this or do i find a new hull....thanks for your help

    Default Sanger Jets

    Sanger jets with partial box stringers crack along one of the chimes. The only right way to fix this is cut the floor out and repair from both sides inside and out. The design was to create a box section with the bottom of the boat, foam and the plywood floor. Once the integrity of the floor is lost and water infiltrates its over.

    The bottom line is ..............................if the crack is not addressed ( repaired ) water will wick into the crack creating a bigger problem or should i say more Delamination .
