Should I be concerned with this?

Take a look at this pic of the keel/hull transition. The bottom generally needs to be cleaned, stripped and painted, but this area concerns me. It felt like the seam has been caulked or something. The interior was perfectly dry, the hull/deck had no soft spots, and generally the boat is in good shape. The yard guys said it was no problem, but they of course have an interest in moving the boat, so grain of salt taken there.
Here's more pics of the boat, if it helps:

They're asking for three grand, but it's been there for a while, so I can probably get away with it for much less, depending on the aforementioned issue.

Any thoughts will be much appreciated
