Hello and stress cracks

Hi All
Apologies if this is a repeat message. Iím struggling with the site navigation

Iím looking at buying a 2001 Ribtec 585. Nice condition but stress cracks in the hull.

Is this a walk away boat or is it more an aesthetic issue that a covering of epoxy and antifoul will sort out?

Any advice gratefully received.

Everything can be repaired!! If you are interested in the boat/Rib a quote for repair in costs and timescale before you part with money !

They look like stress cracks caused by flexing, either indicating the boat has had a hard life or the structural integrity is compromised, possible soft stringers & or floor a proper repair would require reinforcing from inside in my opinion which will be major surgery. If its just from the boat being driven hard it may not get any worse in normal use, unfortunately no real way to tell personally I'd leave it alone
