  my impex spider crack experience
  Posted by: jesse59 on Dec-26-12 4:31 PM (EST)

My force 5 is about 8 years old and has some spider cracks in the hull. It's absolutely nothing to worry about. It developed these probably 4 years ago and I've had no issues with water entry or gelcoat chipping, bubbling or peeling away.

I have seen some spider cracks in other boats lead to gelcoat deterioration (bubbled and chipped off where the cracks let water behind the gelcoat) and therefore compromising the integrity of the hull, but not in my case.
