Recently purchased a used 1997 ZX202C.
Just discovered a very strange issue I've never even heard of.
I haven't hit anything I've been very careful with the boat on all my outings since I purchased it (2-3 weeks ago).
Brought it home tonight and took the cover off and there's a 3 inch long fiberglass crack on the pontoon...the weird part is, is its oozing out little water drops, or I assume it's water. This wasn't there when I bought it. The liquid it's oozing smells VERY bad like tar mixed with mildew and resin. Very strong smell.
I stuck a shop vac on it to try to get it to stop leaking, but it keeps dripping.
Could this have been an old repair spot that's starting to deteriorate?
It's not deep either. I keep it covered and in the shade and the cracked area is covered when the cover is on.
Not soft, or too lumpy
