So I got my T2 out of heated storage this weekend to get ready for the new season and found some interesting cracks in the base of my comp tip. I did not notice these when I bought it new nor at the end of last season. I haven't tipped the boat or drop the mast so I'm not sure how it got like this. but I guess I have to deal with it. I don't see how trying epoxy would help. Although it looks like some epoxy around the one short crack already.
I may have to just buy a new one.

Likely cosmetic only. The outer black material is much more brittle than the fiber structure.

So if that is all I see, you think I'm good to go? I like hearing that, only cosmetic, yay.
