Looking at buying used 2013 Ranger 520. It is a few cracks by driver seat. Not real big but how do I know if it's stress cracks or just superficial? 3 cracks very thin about 4" long

a very good friend of mine has a skeeter he bought it with 2 small stress cracks that were about 2in not those small superficial cracks now those superficial cracks are 9 in and deep they will have to be repaired by next year he was told by 2 shops my skeeter had sever cracks about both seating compartments and it was fine I would have it looked at first it could be nothing or it could be a 2600$ repair job in a year or 2

Fine stress cracks, if they are only superficial, occur because too much gelcoat was sprayed in the mold when the hull was laid up and even the smallest amount of flex will cause cracking. If it's deeper than the surface, then it does need to be addressed.

Take it to a glass shop if your worried about it, especially since it's a 2013.Its prolly just cosmetic tho.
