Problems: Minor bend in rudder shaft. Still functional
There is no such thing as a "minor" bend in a rudder shaft. The boat is not going to sail properly. It's akin to trying to drive a car with a bent axle.

It's likely that the current owner is selling the boat because he has found out how much it is going to cost to fix things. For $3K you can do a lot better.
