i wouldent worry about it,
we had had a grp boat for over 30 years with some spider cracks under the hull and on the cabin sides ,they developed after about 6/7 years from new and never got any worse in all the time we had it ,

we had the osmosis police aound the yard giving out advising not saying that it doesent happen but i knew a few yachties thats had spider cracks and spent an awfull lot of money with the verdict it was osmosis when in most cases it wasent ,

if you dont have your boat permanantly afloat i wouldent be too fussed.

when cleaning my boat last weekend I also noticed some cracks in the hull - they go through a spray which seems not so best :-(
