Hull Integrity of a Sunken Catalina 36

I am thinking of buying a Cat 36 that was sunk with a 5X5 hole and apparently repaired by Catalina. It is a 1985 and the repair occurred 12 years ago. There appears to 5 be small cracks (5 inches or so) on the deck and by the portals above the repair on the starboard side midship.

My question is that if the repairs were done properly will the hull be as strong and are these cracks normal?

Thanks for any ideas.
