Cracks in Console?

I have a 2015 Sweetwater 2086. I noticed while cleaning it up for winter storage that the console has cracks in 3 places. One across the little tray by the antenna, 1 at the lower left corner of the gauge panel and one by the throttle. Is this considered normal? The boat only has 55 hours on it and gets pretty easy use, docked on a 500 acre inland lake and moved about 1/4 mile twice a year for winter storage. I feel like I take pretty good care of the boat, and it's a little disappointing.

    cheaper boats, like mine I guess, have consoles that are made by some company and then bolted on by Godfrey. Mine is plastic of some kind, no gel coat, no cracks after 4 tough years. Can you look at the back and see if the crack goes all the way through? Also talk to the dealer about a warranty claim.

    Thanks. It is fiberglass. Inside is just the rough mesh, and I can't see the cracks from in there. I will check with the dealer too.

    they will probably say cracks in gelcoat are not covered by warranty  :(

    Did the dealer cover it under warranty? I have the same issue.
