1999 Sea Ray 400 DB Venturi cracking

Towards the end of this past summer, the venturi on the bridge of my 1999 400 Sedan Bridge started to "spider-crack" on the both side panels. It is progressing. Does anyone know if this is a known issue? Is there a repair or am I forced to buy new panels? Thanks for any knowledge and feedback.

Luv n Life

I can't help, but am dying to know what the Venturi is?

Beyond repair. Fatigue from the shock of hitting those waves hard with those big engines. Common problem with pleasure craft without sails.
