it's also referred to as "telegraphing" and it's caused by the fiberglass having a different coefficient of thermal expansion than the paint. As the boat heats and the paint/varnish/epoxy softens, it expands differently from the glass. It isn't enough to worry about structurally, but it is enough to be visible. Once the boat cools, the pattern is permanently frozen into the finish.
