    Any suggestions on how to remove or at least reduce the excessive hull gap on my Akula? Thanks for your time!

    Disregard! Looks like metal glaze will be my weapon of choice for this fix.

      Good choice. How about showing us how you do it.

            Fill the gap with CA-baking soda, or automotive two-part filler. If you do the later, soak the work with thin formula CA to strengthen the bond between filler and hull edge.
