    Yeah... I don't think it's supposed to do that.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Yikes.
    There's the plan, then there's what actually happens.

    Someone did that layer without enough resin.

    At least the keel didn't fall off.

    Karma Alert to all Carvel Traditionalists........Fiberglass boats don't instantly plummet to the bottom when a large piece of the hull becomes unattached.....

    I hate it when that happens!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    And then there were the Broadwater production wood powerboats built in Mayo, Maryland. Six boats reportedly flooded/sunk due to delamination of the plywood planking circa 1974, and the company went out of business. Apparently the plywood had a problem.

    Certainly saves a lot of time prepping for the new layer!

    Is that the latest in anti fouling? It's brilliant! Like visor tear-aways on a motorcycle helmet...

    Interesting failure, but it almost looks as if the layer was added to a molded composite structure, rather than being part of the original laminate. Anyone familiar with such laminates? I recently saw an older glass structure that had an interior foam-core reinforcement added long after it was built, which also failed. ( I once was in the Beneteau plant and this doesn't look anything like their methods. )
