Is this something that could have ever been caught during a survey, or just a "known issue" with the manufacturer?

Impossible to detect BEFORE the failure happens. When it does, it usually happens all at once. Not all 1991s did it, but one I sold to a guy in Chicago did. Cigarette repaired it under warranty back then, rather than get the negative publicity.

Darrell.
That's what's nice about fiberglass. If the right guy fixes it it's better than the original.

Thanks. Kind of what I thought. Man, the gremlins that you must know about from seeing all the boats you have over the years....

Scary sometimes, but it makes me a better surveyor.

Thanks Ed!!

But in all honesty I have to give most of the credit to Frank F. and FiberGlass Plus in Pt. Pleasant NJ!

Frank and his crew did delam. work and I did the bulkheads and blue printing.
