light cracks ( hull )
well, as some of you might know ( i posted the story ) about my friend that his the sand with my ski going prettttty fast.
well didnt seem to do any damage at all, except when i looked at it in the sun light, there is one small part of the hull, about 3 or 4 inches height and width, barely noticable small cracks, not sure if its just in the gel coat, or in the whole thing, they arent very thick either. they look like hair, there are a few of them.

post some pics, if its damage related, the cracks could cause delamination, thats when large parts of the hull PEEL off.
however stress cracks are not uncommon in gelcoat, and your cracks may not an issue, depends on exact location.

Ive read post on here where a member said hair line cracks are common on rxps. there caused by the weight of the gas tank and the ski hitting waves. I read this in one of the hull delamination threads.
