i recently purchased a 70's montauk(just the hull)there was heavy oxidation gauges on the main rib to the fiberglass and foam.ive sanded off the ixidation and used epoxy to fill in voids.also i dug out any soft spots on the hull and filled them with epoxy.i applied bottomcoat to the question is that there are small circular cracks that are weaping water out of them,and the circular cracks below the waterline under the bottomcoat are oozing some kind of sticky substance through the bottomcoat.i am a beginner and this is my first attempt to repair a hull.what have i done wrong,and how do i remedy it.or should i leave it up to the proffessionals.thank you for your input.

Ive been trying to understand the description of the problem. If I am correct in my decipherment, then you have a big problem on you hands, if I am wrong, you might be fine. Can you please slowly describe the condition of the hull as it is today? Furthermore, would you please restate the first two sentances of your post with much greater detail? How was the work preformed, materials used, etc.?

We need much more detail to figure this out.
