Had that happen to my old fiver under warranty. Thought it was a stress crack in the fiberglass. Don't know what the dealer did, but they fixed it and it reappeared about 4 years later in the exact same shape and spot. Never got it fixed after that.

If it reappears after being fixed, it is indeed cracking in the fiberglass. The only real fix is too sand the gelcoat off and apply a new gelcoat. That is not cheap.
Unfortunately, it is a common problem on anything made of fibreglass.
