thanks matt – I’ll be checking this weekend – If there is any cracking it must be pretty small so I was wondering what are people’s thoughts on the best stuff for this sort of job? Epoxy is stiff & strong but won’t wood be moving a little in this area (hence the problem in the 1st place) & so will it only be a temp. fix? Would a more flexable sealant work better? Has anyone out there any experience of “Capt Tolley’s creeping crack cure” (what a name!?!) which actually mentions centreboard cases as a use on the packet – seems too good to be true?
