    I have a keel crack on my 21' Eliminator Daycruiser that is leaking. What is the best way to fix this? It seems to me that the prescription would be a few layers of 3" fiberglass tape over the cracked area and then maybe Keelguard on the outside of the boat. I know that it will look a little...
