gelcoat cracks beneteau 361

I have a lightly used fresh water only 2003 beneteau 361. Numberous fine cracks have appeared in the gelcoat on the deck as well as in the fiberglass of the steering pedestal and cockpit seats. Is this a common problem or a manufacturing defect? The cracks began to appear when the boat was new and have continued to develop. Beneteau and the local dealer have not been helpful. Has anyone else experienced this problem with their beneteau?
