R36 Hull stress cracks

Warning to R36 owners
Posted: 12 Sep 2013 - By: Mowzer
Don't want to worry you but ....Removing our many years of accumulated antifouling paint has revealed a number of hairline stress cracks on the port side, near the bow. 450mm x 40mm. 40lbs anchor, 50 metres of chain, holding tank, sails and general stores and the damage was probably caused by driving into a heavy sea or falling off a wave at some time.

Topic raised just for information as to what could be going on hidden from view underneath your antifouling paint!
