Those cracks look like something I found on my Ericson26. Was not a deal breaker for me. I dropped the rudder and peeled of the gelcoat and found the cracks were just in the gelcoat. I put a few coats of resin and primmed and bottom painted it and was fine. You don't see rudder in the water so gelcoat removal was no big deal to me. I used a grey primer that was made to make the bottom paint stick to the resin. That setup by the prop looks like, don't know what it's called, but if it moves is used to helps steer the boat.
