Hello All,

I have notices cracks that have formed were the bridle wires connect to the bow.
These cracks appear to be stress related and as such I am concerned that they may cause failure.
Does anyone have any sugestions on what is required to fix this issue?

Please find below pictures:

Thanks,
SRG

A lot of gel coat there that can crack. I personally have never see one fail there. LOTS of fiberglass.
