    hull stress cracks?

    ok, so I Was waxing my ski the other night, and noticed like 3 stress crack looking marks. I couldn't tell if they were stress cracks, or what they were from, and I couldn't get the camera to capture them. If you rub your finger over them you can feel it, its almost as if there was small hair line cracks then the ski was painted.. I"m just worried because of all the recent hull delaminations I've seen. IF its stress cracks, thought I'm kinda pissed cause I have like 24 hours on my ski, and its never been beached or hit anything.

    dang... mine is 06 too. I just hope they stay the way they are. I'm so disapointed in these hulls. There older hulls were tanks... I just dont understand why these ones aren't the same quality.

    Unfortunately stress cracks seem to be just be part of life... Mine has them too and I insisted that my dealer photograph them and document them for future reference. Keep in mind that the Hondas also get stress cracks just like we do.

    Every Sea Doo I've had has stress cracks. Not as bad on the Yamahas though.
    My 06 RXP has them, but the are minor not like that picture, those are bad!

    this is my third seadoo, and this one is babied compared to the other 2. They never had a stress crack in them. I know this one is double the weight.. but stress cracks should not occur that quickly. I'm very disapointed in all the stories I've heard about hull and fiberglass problems with these new skis.
