This crack is under the deck roughly above my thigh. It looks worse than it is. I think this is just some added glass that has flaked off, looks almost like when dry paint cracks and comes off. It doesn't seem to have damaged the actual deck. It looks like the added glass which was used to install the skeg slider.

After last nights Monday Club paddle down the bay my boat was looking worse for ware. When I bought this boat there were a few hair line cracks around the cockpit coaming and the coaming itself looked like it had previously been repaired. After a few roles it seems these cracks have become worse and the coaming is now moving. I was hoping it would hold out until I got the fiberglass for my boat build but it looks like I might have to put my hand in my pocket a little sooner.
