I recently noticed a thin vertical crack along the very front edge (bow) of the hull(both)where the hull is joined together. Has anyone encountered this? I am probably going to sand off the gel coat to see how deep the crack runs, although I can't believe it goes through to the interior.
I have not hit anything so I am assuming it is a natural seam crack.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Thomas

Replied under "help with repairs"

The Tiger hulls are "Clam shell" two halfs joined down the center of the deck / keel / bow, so a visable "crack" may be crazing over a bit of flex the hull went through. The gel coat could be thin maybe. Photo?
