Excellent advice! That's what happened to our Scamp
when it was hit by a tree limb. The PO made repairs to the belly band, but the real damage was to the fiberglass that seals the two halves. It was a very easy fix, once I opened up the rat fur behind the belly band (and read the fiberglass link above.) Don't let those leaks
get started! Fixing from the outside just won't hold water
