    Fine gel coat cracks?

    I have been watching these cracks for the last year and they are not really any worse. What do you guys think? Surface gel coat cracking or something serious? None of it is soft or leaks.
    On the nose.

    The bottom.


    Under the rubrail above the waterline.


    The transition from the side to the bottom.

    I think those are just superficial, likely resulting from the hull flexing a little bit during use. My msx has the same thing.

    Hard to tell from the photos. Are there some strong vertical cracks in the second photo?

    Has this hull been ridden hard in rough water or wave jumping?

    Yes I ride it pretty hard in all water types. I have taken large 4 foot yacht wakes at 60mph it launches you like you were on a dirt bike, haha. Yes those are vertical in the third photo. The second pic is more of a huge spider web. It is only on the one side and looks like there may have been a impact there. No scratching or gouging but a white skid mark or two. I also took a hard fall on this side last year when a high speed jump went a little sidewise on the landing. Local patrol boat said it was the worst single ski crash he had ever seen. I was a bit dizzy and had a bad cut on my finger but I almost landed it No noticeable cracking on the inside. Like I say no change in about 100 hours but I am rebuilding this ski and if it is an issue it's time for some glass work inside.
