Twister 24 hull

Hi,

Can anyone tell me whats these cracks are? cracks in the gelcoat/paint or are they structural damage?
They are running along about 2 meters of the hull on both sides about mid ship, I pressed against it and it seemed like the area where a little soft, but I dont got anything to compare it with so I dont know, any comments?

I'm no expert but from what I have seen in these hulls is that is most likely paint cracking from flex.

I noticed most twisters have thicker core (or only core) half way up from pictures I have seen. This would cause the sides to flex in the area you are pointing out.

Look on the inside, if you see cracks inside you have a problem. If its just on the outside you should be ok. But without better pictures I cant be 100% sure.

Just my 2 cents for what its worth.
