    I have a 1987 O'Day 272LE and I have many stress cracks all over the boat. Is there a way to fix these cracks without major work?

    Some people have had good success with a product called Magic Ezy. I used it on a few cracks. I wasn't impressed with the results. That would be the easy fix.

    In my opinion the proper way is to grind out the cracks fill the void with a marine grade filler and gel coat over. Another way is to grind it and fill with just gel coat. Both ways are labor intensive.
