These are illustrations of the differences. Personally, I wouldn't buy a boat with this much crazing. Unless the price was SO low to allow for needed repairs. You are leaving yourself open to too much water penetration and soaking into the deck.

This is caused by a poor layup of the original gelcoat not adhering to the fiberglass.

This is alligatoring which some is broken to the surface, and some hasn't broken to the surface (yet). This is caused by poor gelcoat luyup, But it adheres to the fiberglass.

And this is a spider crack from physical damage or weakness of the underlying fiberglass. Could as well be the deck, around stanchions or corners on the deck/house. The spider cracks usually center on damage of some type.

They are seen on hulls usually just forward or aft of hull to bulkheads where impacts have 'sprung' the fiberglass from hard landings and smacks. The fiberglass flexes a lot before and after the bulkhead. But not so much AT the bulkhead.

Not the case

It is not even close to this bad, but yet bad enough that individual repairs would be a BIG job.

@ Siestakey, I may have to try a tube of that. Looks too easy to be true!! Thanks for the heads up.

@ Gordonj, Are the defects you saw spider cracks, or crazing?

Re cracks

Neither really, more like random cracks, but there are hundreds of them

Glue down phony teak, glue down Nautalux , glue down carper , paint , or if venturing offshore use Treadmaster.

I used MagicEzy on a couple of hairlines and it worked beautifully. Even managed a color match.

I'd sure like to know what you did as I tried a brand new tube today with ZERO results.

I just applied it according to the directions, straight from the tube into the crack. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good, I guess.

When I saw the video, I thought due it its apparent low viscosity, it might work fine on a horizontal surface, but maybe not so great on a vertical one. Could that be the difference between the two results?
