Hi,

I have a H17 from '99 but at the end of the crossbars where the hull castings meets the bars there are small cracks in the gelcoat on all 4 castings, my plans was to give it some silicone to close the cracks so the fiberglass wouln't get wet and the hulls maybe full of water. any insights? thanks for your answers :lol:

Cracks around the "hump" at the end of the crossbars?

Cosmetic... I think this is somewhat cosmetic. Not a leak concern.

Make sure the cross bar screws are tight. We tighten every day when sailing. A tee bar allen wrench is a very handy tool for this maintenance.

how about cracks on the outside of the hull - as if the bar continued on through and made a U shaped crack

That doesn't sound good. How about a photo?
