Stress Cracking, The "Crealock cracks".

I went to go look at a 1992 37'. Behind the coaming there were some pretty substantial stress cracks about 18" long running mostly parallel. I was told that all the 37's have this cracking issue behind the coaming where it meets the aft deck. He even called it the "Crealock cracks" or something like that.
Do a lot of people have this issue?
Is there a history of water intrusion in this area?
Is there anyway to repair this without having to repaint the whole boat?

I'll being going back to look again and will take some photos.

Thanks Scup
