I would check to see what the mounts are supported by under the cap first off.

if you remove the tower feet to inspect see if they chamfered the holes or maybe someone forgot a step....

Not sure I would repair them as they are most likely just cosmetic.. Unless you can find whats causing them they would most likely re-appear..

You can fix them by drilling a pinhole at the bottom of each crack then channel(very small v along the crack) then color match and fill....

color matching to me seems very difficult. i did a gel coat repair on my boat but it was on the very very bottom of the boat to where you would have to be lying on your back on the ground under trailer looking up to see it. a keel guard will be installed this summer i am thinking
