Re: Hull damage

The break occured about 58" forward of the stern. The bottom panel there is about 7" wide. With 3" tape on the keel & chine (no glass between), this left about 4" unprotected. The boat hit dead center in this space. Bad luck! Two inches either way and there probably would have been no damage.
Oh well, as Mac noted, now she has her first ding so I can quit fretting such stuff so much. That and try to be a little more careful ...
