Hi all,
Our club has 4 RS500s, all about 8 years old. Two of these have developed horizontal cracks about 4 inches wide all the way through the fiberglass, just aft of the mast step in the cockpit.
 
Has anyone had similar issues, and have you done successful repairs on your own? I'm guessing that there is some kind of extra reinforcement below the mast step; does anyone know what it is?
 
My current plan is to grind out a 8"x6" area around the mast step and add 4 layers of glass there. Any suggestions you would have would be appreciated!
 
Cheers,
Nathan
