Now I am a total noob at glassing but it looks like you have no bias in the glass on the seam? I recall reading a couple of build logs and people like to cut the glass for the seem "against the grain" or weave, so for example your seem strips would be filled with "diamonds" rather than squares, rotated 45 degrees. This spreads the load out to more fibers, avoiding the possibility of a tear, which it looks like you may have suffered from. Sorry for your loss.
