Almost completed restoring a neglected and abused 14 Turbo. There were several areas of delamination which are now fairly solid but not 100%. I have seen some photos of boats with the bow snapped off. How likely is this to happen? I was thinking of adding a crossbar to take the load off the bows.
This boat will not be raced seriously, just another watertoy for my collection.

The spreader will ease the inwards pull, but not the pull straight up. Really hard to tell how solid it is now. Be carefull and stay inshore.
