    Default Crack in Gelcoat

    Ok guys need your opinion on what to do here. I just purchased this 2013 Moomba Mojo, brought it home yesterday. General dings and things that can be fixed but didn't notice anything big. Boat ran amazing on the water so I was very happy. However, I was wiping it down over lunch, cant keep my hands off it right now , and noticed this crack about 2.5 feet long running down the side. I didn't even notice before and really you cant see it unless you are real close. Is this something to worry about? Potential costs or even ideas of fixing it?

    It looks like a scratch call skiers choice I believe the hull has a life time warranty

    My buddy discovered a crack like that under the decal on his 2010 LSV. $3k to fix.

    Having it looked at today. I am hoping itís only gelcoat and itís not from water getting behind and causing any structural damage. I guess that can happen and freeze then the expansion causes the gel to crack. Just kicking myself for not seeing this before I left the marina with it. Anyway my local dealer is going to let me know.

    Curious what you guys think about this crack
    I found after winter storage. Itís tough to see in the black gelcoat with the reflection but itís a hairline crack that runs from the screw in the docking light down as far as I can see under the keel. Itís not splintered and thereís no impact spot, so I know itís not from me/it hitting something. It looks more like itís just a ďstress split.Ē From what I can tell itís only in the gelcoat and can barley be felt running a fingernail over it. I sent an email to me dealer as well but wanted to get opinions from this group.

    If you can, check inside of the Hull in that spot to see if there has been any fiberglass work behind it.

    old post and betting the member is either long gone or fixed the issue.

    gotta admit I'm having a heck of a time seeing the crack in the pic from KT. that pic is real confusing.
    most boat companies warranty cracks for 1 year. after that it's on the owner.

    Cosmetic gel crack, a good gel repair guy would knock that out.
