    That it is, so start by pulling the motor. Line up a couple of cherry pickers and something to sit it down on. Pick up some resin and glass can some yellow pigment. If you only fix this you should be back right side up in a few days.

    Been through this on many boat repairs. That is caused by the lifting strakes not being filled and glassed over on the inside of the hull. Repairing from the outside is just a temporary bandaid. You will need to get the sub floor out and repair it on the inside. Most newer quality boats have the strakes filled with cabisil and then glassed over to eliminate the hard edge for the bottom to break at.

    Just an observation. Looks like you might have broken bunk on the trailer too (the inside one). Looks like there's quite a bit of room between it and the hull, and looks like the bunk has been hitting the frame. Might be part of the problem.

    I have the exact same crack have been fighting it for awhile, the outside patch is just as said temporary I cut out a piece of the floor last time and it lasted a little longer but I like the idea of filling in the strakes cause they aree just a layer of glass right now.
