Cracks in Fiberglass

Discovered 2 cracks - rear, drivers side near where roof seam joins with panel going down the rear. The cracks are about 6 inches long and 4 inches apart. I covered them with Eternabond. Hope this holds and cracks don't expand. Anyone from suggestions?

It could be from stress. If it is and it's completely relieved itself the eternabond will hold without a problem. If it continues to crack you should take it to a place that's well versed in fiberglass. Most marine repair places are used to fixing these kinds of problems. They'll most likely gouge and end drill the cracks before repairing them.

Thanks for the help. We're heading to Florida in 6 weeks. If the crack holds we'll get it repaired in Florida - plenty of marine repair shops there.
