Is it normal for stress cracks in our rigs? I am the owner of my pops 1989 21 RC Vdrive and just curious if this is normal wear and tear
Most of the older ones have that. My 78 does as well. I’ve fixed them and they come back.Lol yes identical
@Outdrive1 do you remember how the cracks in your '78 were fixed?Most of the older ones have that. My 78 does as well. I’ve fixed them and they come back.
The later model boats have better materials. Bi directional glass and vinylester resin. The old boats are matt glass and polyester resin and not nearly as strong structurally. Those materials weren’t available back then.
Anyhow there isn’t much you can do to stop that from happening without spending real money on the boat or laying up a new deck. Kornowski can fix it but he cuts the deck off to do it.
