One of them is paddling all the way out to our spot setting decoys and my dad says "wow there sure is a lot of water in the bottom of this thing!" and it was power paddle time all the way back with about 8" in the bottom by the time we got to shore lol. If I were you I would re-enforce the keel all the way down and also obviously where you have the hole by the transom. I would put as many layers of glass cloth as you can on those spots. When you transport it in the back of your pickup or on a trailer make sure you strap it down tight. I think mine was bouncing when we went over bumps and that is how it cracked down the keel. I am not bashing your boat either...it was a fun boat!
