Yamaha OEM portable tank

My 6 gal. OEM portable tank for the dinghy has developed some strange splits in the surface of the tank along the edges of molded in shapes. The cracks appear to be only "skin deep", just the top skin of the surface seems to be separating. No leakage. The tank is 4 yrs. old.

Anyone experience this sort of problem? I've seen them fading, but not the cracking. For a relatively pricey OEM tank, it seems like a pretty short life span. Our dinghy is covered about a 3rd of the time, and the tank lives under the seat. Not sure if it should be replaced or if the problem will remain cosmetic.

Purchased from Defender, in reviewing my order history to determine the time frame, I'm thinking it's not too much to ask about any warranty on the tank. The $115 I spent on the tank is but a drop in the bucket in the orders I've placed.
