This same failure happened to a few 1991's due to a size problem of the fiberglass material. Without the overlap of the 60" sheet, there was a structural weakness in that area.

I've seen another older gun do same thing after a hard run.

How difficult of a repair is this, being a carbon Fiber edition?

Where the repair is needed there is no carbon fiber.

Had the same probelm with overlap, like Ed suggested, in my old Scarab.

In my case it delaminated in the keel. We wound up cutting the keel section about 5-6ft long. It was determined that Wellcraft only overlapped the keel about 4-5 inches and which made it weak. Then we cut the floor out of the cabin liner. Feathered all the edges and began the re-glass process...layer after layer after layer...overlapping about a foot and a half each time...then we added a stringer down the keel and about 7 mini bulkheads width wise just underneath the cabin liner...then glassed the cabin liner back into palce...I also removed and replaced the gas tank and added additional layers of glass in the keel under the tank. While we were at it I added additional builkheads throughout the boat and spent about two weeks blue printing the bottom of the boat. In the end the boat was stronger than it was before the delamination failure and I gained 3 mph..

Nice work. It's always good to see a positive difference after a project is completed.
