looks like someone side-swiped a dock. easy to do! A good repair would require getting behind the place and putting some extra fiberglass down to reinforce it then grinding the cracks out and filling with gel. An OK repair would be just putting the glass on the inside. A bad repair would be covering it up with a wrap! I looks like is is not in a structural part of the boat and wouldn't lilely cause any safety issues. Still probably a $1500-$3000 repair and should be taken care of before any deal to buy the boat. You just never know if they are going to find a stringer cracked when they access the hull.
