Cracked Deck

Posted by John DeLaurier on May 15, 2004

When my friend and I were carefully installing the fore deck on my Mill Creek 13 the deck cracked about 12" across forward of the bow bulkhead. It was a clean break, and I was able to join it together with epoxy and a strap clamp. It still was fustrating for this to happen and my helper was an experienced CLC builder. Just wondering if there are any similar stories, and what was the fix. At least now I know I will be going for a painted finish vice a varnished one.
