How old are the boats in questions? If they are newer then it may be a gelcoat shrinkage problem and not stress cracking. I know the guy who sells resin to Viking; don't know if he sells anything to Post. Notice I did not say gelcoat as I don't know what resin products he sells. Nor do I know when he got the account.

Is Ocean Yachts any part of this. What is the angle. I think at 10 years old any boat is going to have a certain amount of wear.

If you have some sort of info we should know about please tell. Also some examples of how bad the cracking is would be beneficial to your cause.

As soon as I feel my boat has some signs of age I go look at some newer boats and I feeel much better. I also employ a gelcoat artist to come in once a season and touch things up as would be expected to keep a boat looking new.
