Stress cracking of what? Gelcoat (yes), hull, stringers, engine mounts, seats, anything else no.

Do you mean hairline cracks?
In which case yes - PM me for chapter and verse, they are still not sorted out.

Agree with rafiki. You need to define what you mean by stress cracking. I've experienced cracking of the bonding between bulkheads and the hull of a Targa 48 which I used to own. Not a serious issue and relatively cheap to repair but not what you'd expect from a so called quality boat builder
