On the way home from kayaking today a nimrod in a Ford pickup rolled off the brakes and into the back of our Shearwater Doubleon its trailer. The impact shoved the kayak forward 6 to 10 inches and put a crossways crack across hull panel#2 and a puncture on hull panel#3 just forward of the starboard hip brace.
The first picture is the inside of the front cockpit, the dark rectangle in the upper right is the hip brace. Second picture shows the puncture from the outside.
Can I clean up the edges of the cracks and punctures to the point the panels can be realigned and epoxied together, before sanding a fiberglassing both sides? Or do I need to cut out enough of both panels to bridge the cracks and punctures and insert new pieces, wire tie and fillet together, then fiberglass both sides. What would be the best way to repair?
