No idea im afraid but I'd say the hull needs a couple of spots of gelcoat filler, cheap and easy to do before it develops.

No idea.....its a boat I'm looking at.

If it has sealed bearings I want to factor in the cost of a new trailer.

Why ? Sealed bearings are stronger and easy to change, just need pressed out. you don't need a new trailer because of them that's for sure!

Damage looks like could be due to way it's recovered so use that as your bargaining chip! Pardon the pun

Exactly, bearings are cheap and hidden anyway. Hard to use them as a negotiating point. The hull damage is obvious and probably more expensive to repair than replacing the bearings too. Use those chips to get the price down to your liking.

I did '000s of miles on sealed bearing over 3 years they were fine and are still fine now.

So how do you press them out at the side of the road?

I always carried a spare drum with bearings, damn slight easier to change than a pair of tapered bearings.
