Crack in the headliner fiberglass?

Looking at a Sabre 30 today and noticed a crack in the headliner under the mast. I'm not sure if I'm looking at deck compression and the boat does have an adjustable back stay (too much tension on the backstay?).

Anyone have an idea?

It's very common on many boats. If that is all you are seeing.. it's not a deal breaker IMHO

Not a deal breaker but something that will need to be dealt with. There likely some deck or compression post issues.
