    Stress Cracks?

    I know, without pics this thread is worth as much as the air I breathe!!!!

    I will take pics tomorrow and post, It's 5PM and it might as well be 10PM it is so dark here.

    I have 4 Vertical cracks on the TOP FRONT of my hull. They start at the rubber strip and go up to the BRP emblem. They don't connect, but they are significant........or are they?

    Please let me know,
    Joe

    Stress cracks on the topside of the hull? That's new to me. It sounds more like spider cracking due to poor quality gelcoat. I have heard that there was a bad dose of gelcoating they used in the not too distant past. I think you should get your pics and send them to BRP for their opinion as well.

    Given the location of it I would lean more towards spider cracking in the gelcoat before thinking it was stress cracking. I think you should show that to BRP and get their opinion. If it was an issue in 06 they may have some sort of extended warranty or they may just be good and do something for you.
