i wouldnt call either of those spots a deal breaker.
those both seem to be very easy fixes,if in fact there is no other consequential damage.
it apears in the pics that those spots are fibreglass or lead that has been filled with fibreglass.
if its a fibreglass area,just in case,i would probably drill a very small hole (7/64,1/8)about 2 inches below the damage and let it sit for a day to see if any water comes dripping out.the amount of water that comes out will determine the severity of the damage.
if its lead i would look for small cracks elsewhere on the boat.if that is impact damage another area could have been effected.
one way or another i would never purchase a boat without a survey.not matter the cost.
