Stress Cracks around swim step mounts

Recommended Posts

Hey gang, first time poster. I have a 2000 Malibu Sunsetter VLX with some cracks around the swim step platform mounts. Looking for advice or opinions....I know stress cracks form around points like this but how much is trouble? When does it need repair?

I've tried to link a URL for the picture but have had some difficulties so here is a link to a picture of the cracks:

I doubt it needs repair.  Likely the result of misapplication of the gel coat. It would be a PITA to fix as you would need to remove the brackets (disassemble the back end of the boat interior)
