Hello all

Looking for experts advice again...Iīve found some cracks around flag pole hole,itīs strange because I have never used that it, so no stress in that area. Looking underneath I saw a reinforcement polyester patch, donīt know if maybe cracks happened when the boat was being built, during the drilling in the factory or they normally reinforce that area...anyway, I need to know how to repair it. The cracks are not just that sort of stress spiderweb kinda looking ones, but still difficult to fill with polyester paste...so what should I do...any tips ...?
