Unsure of cracks in bonding material after delivery

Hi all,

Have just delivered my first sailboat from Portugal to Norway, a 2010 Bene Oceanis 40' and have noticed a few small new cracks in the grey bonding material between the hull and inner support systems that were not present in surveys.

A few days of the trip were spent sailing to weather in 20-30 kn under main and engine so obviously some pounding in the forward region nothing serious I thought but I'm not totally confident what the limits of this size/hull of Beneteau actually is.

As I'm unsure of the construction methods and what kind of forces this particular bonding material should endure before cracking I though I would ask if any Beneteau owners have experienced this or if anyone knows how normal this is?

The largest is pictured and in the forward cabin and a few others around the vessel smaller and little chips of glass in drains etc..Click image for larger version
