Howdy, I'm trading an older Flying Junior Dinghy for a '76 HC16, I'm planning on sailing our kids around on the lakes here in NM in the mellower breezes, the dinghy's just too small. The HC seems to be in decent shape, with a new set of sails, newish running and standing rigging, and a trailer. The only real problem is that there are soft decks in front of the front crossbar on both hulls. The epoxy injection for this does not seem like too big of a problem, but one hull has a has a crack about a foot long in the deck and is extra soft in this area, here's a link to a photo of the crack -http://www.flickr.com/photos/49274790@N00/4600719561/
This looks like a job that may require adding a port and backing up the area below the deck, which is not beyond my skills. I'm looking for advice and solutions for this, or am I just wasting my time with this boat?
