Nose cone cracking!

Anyone had this problem? I was washing it the other day and noticed spider web cracks on the nose just above the side marker lights. I think it's just in the gel coat, and hope it's an easy fix. Starting to get nervous about this rig, the repairs have been piling up.

Not exactly an easy fix, but more than likely not a structural problem either. Many people with fiberglass boats are very accustomed to seeing these spider cracks. Still, I'd be bringing it into the dealership to have it repaired. From my limited knowledge of gel coating, they'll need to sand it down, apply new gel coat, sand, sand, sand, prep, paint, sand.... Good luck!
