In 2004, midship and halfway between the keel and water line, an area with less than 25% of original thickness was also excised and a steel insert was welded to repair this defect. In July 2012, two small localized areas, about the size of a pencil eraser, were reinforced with epoxy.  Work was done by Marine Group in Chula Vista, CA.  An ultrasound inspection was performed on the same date.
