Compression dings in hulls

Post by gahamby »

In the course of cleaning and polishing the hulls I noticed a compression ding on the outboard side of the port hull up forward where I think the bulkhead is. It's rectangular in shape and vertically oriented. I've tried getting a picture but it doesn't read on camera. Is this a structural problem or just cosmetic?

I suspect it is probably just cosmetic. If it is rectangular and vertical I am guessing it is actually a "silhouette" of the bulkhead caused by the foam shrinking as it cured.

Thanks for the reply. I figured as much. I had finally gotten her shiney enough to notice.
