small areas of crazing on the top deck usually around the cleat area, not bad just in the top layer of gel

Never heard of the asre of a Phantoim coming apart like these new boats around now days, even when my dads Phantom 21 was smashed up (written off) in Wales and the Yam was hanging off the back it still held together on the drive back to Kent
