Cracks? Depends on the age of the boat as to the appropriate warranty coverage. The boats have a one year (100%) warranty. We have made an adjustment policy for this issue that reflects what the Coleman Company did when they owned Hobie Cat. The Coleman warranty was 5 years. 100 / 80 / 60 / 40 / 20 percent coverage based on retail value of a hull. We have used the same formula, but maximized the warranty to 50% all the way out to 5 years. 100 / 80 / 60 / 50 / 50 percent.
By the way, the cracks have been primarily cosmetic. We have not seen a structural failure to my knowledge.
So, if your boat falls into this range, contact your dealer to file a warranty claim.
