gel coat cracks vailant v490

as i am am looking very hard for my frist rib and manos said don,t buy the wildcat i went to look at a vailant vanguard 490 from a dealer i won,t be buying it due to the very poor condition it was in. black marks on tubes damage to jockey consul but what worry me the most was cracks on the hull
loads of them runing along the chines at the front near the bow line point
is this normal for a 1998 boat as its not a few star shape gel cracks that my
first jet ski had. every chine and three may be four cracks very fine but lots of them and the engine mariner 40 hp had three months warranty if it ever
lasted that long i must keep looking and then the nice rib will come along

I'd give that one a miss, sounds like its had a hard life + 40hp will be boring and it wont do to well getting out of the hole with 6 people on board.
