I would say these are better than nothing. The other option is to reinforce on the inside with epoxy and 1208 biaxial cloth.

They help with flexing, flexing is what causes JS hulls to crack. They typically crack on the sides near the rear corners of the hood, the front corners of the hood and up around the nose.
