Jim--

It is not unusual to find some stress-cracks at tightly radiused corners, particularly if the yacht's been worked hard but finding them in flat deck areas is very uncommon in my experience. Unfortunately, the boat is now 8 years old or so (you did say 2003) and it is a bit late to be going back to Beneteau at this point. Just how bad are these cracks you describe.
