I have a 78, 24ft Argosy that had a hole in the sink in that rear bath. You can't get to much in ours and you can't even change out the faucet without taking the whole sink structure out. We used fiberglass and then bondo, sanded it down and then painted the whole sink. It looks great and you can't even see the patch. I've used just almond colored caulk to fix discolorations and cigarette burns and then lightly sanded over them. It works well. I've also used the caulk method on our 76 Sovereign and it blends well. Just shop around for the right color caulk. There are so many off white ones. I just get the kitchen/tub type in the squeese tube. No problems so far.

If you can't get under something like this to do a repair, you can sometimes superglue the end of a matchstick or similar item to the top surface and use that as a handle to pull the cracked pieces up. Then a couple of drops of thin superglue, followed by a little gap-filling superglue to secure things and fill any gaps. break or cut off the matchsticks and sand with a block to keep from making dips. If you get really good at this you may be able to avoid the whole repainting process. You can try removing the matchsticks using de-bonder, very carefully, as not to get it on the repaired cracks, then sand with 220 grit and finish with a little polishing compound
Good luck, Rich
