    Hard to tell for sure how bad from the pic, lighter boats and older boats tend to get some stress cracks. It looks bad enough to me to get a reputable glass man in your area to give it a close look. Paint can hide all kinds of bad stuff and there was a boat in north texas not to long ago that broke in half and busted the guy up pretty bad. I would get it checked out before chancing it. 2 of the guys on our river busted sides out last two summers, 1 at 90 mph, not cool

    Ya, I hear ya. Our pile does a tick past 90 and the thought of the side giving out at that speed is sickening.
    From the outside (and from a distance) the cracking was very faint. I rubbed some dirt around the area to make it more visible in the pics.
    On the inside the glass seems undisturbed.....at least to the touch.

    Looks like a pretty serious fracture from some sort of impact on the bottom corner like maybe hit something in the water at some point in time. In my opionion it definitely needs the attention of a good glass man.

    That needs attn. Do yourself a favor and get that fixed as soon as you can! I have an older TX and some fool before me was trying to run the boat with bad stringers! To his luck he didn't have much power! Could have been real bad! WT

    That thing took a hit, and somebody covered it up. If it didn't go to the chine, I would worry too much. But like SlowRyd said, it looks like it hit something in the water. Its hard to diagnose on a monitor. But I would definitely have some one knowledgable about glass boats look at it.

    Just grind it out and patch it!
    It definitely took a goot hit, but im willing to be the boat was drug across something or maybe loading the boat.....anything could have done it!
    A few years back, I was floating down river and my Rogers took a good hit on the drivers side from a root that had made its way up to just under the water, it damn near put a hole althe way through the hull, (Very similar to what you have going on!) the boat swung around and drug itself off the branch and left me a nice little repair to do!
    Good thing I had a bildge pump, cuz it trickled water for the rest of the weekend!
    got a pic fron a few inches back, its a nice close up shot, but pull it away so we can get a good eye on it!

    I think I would fix it like Todd tells you to and roll out, 75 model TX looks a hell of alot better than that Wicked to me and people on here have done more with less. I have a 78' Dan Pastorini deal and it is all F***ed up right now from shiddy repairs. We are doing stringers, supports, transom, and bottom with a new intake and hardware as of now! It kinda sucks cuz I'm where you are as far as having some pretty bitchin results and now starting all over, but it will be better than it ever has when we get done and start all over with set up, hell thats the fun part right?

    Surely you have been doing this long enough to realize that you do this shit for love, not money bro! Jet boats have worse return on investment than used undies
