I have a hairline stress crack in the back of our 2018 176T. Is this something I should be worried about? Or is that considered "normal" wear?

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!

When dealing with Gelcoat and fiberglass, stress cracks are common.  There is some flex not common in metal.  The one in picture is not major.  Having owned several vettes I am somewhat familiar with them.  There was a post on another forum from a 179 owner who had stress cracks fixed by FR.  When in doubt check with your dealer or service provider.
