damage after impact

Thank you for reading my post!!
I am currently considering the purchase of a 2003 beneteau 47.3.The owner declared to me that this boat has had an impact on the keel in 2008 which caused damage, and has since been repaired. This is true as i have seen the report of the boat yard, as well as the survey done afterwords which declared that it was repaired perfectly.
There are visible cracks in the layer just under the saloon floorboards, on the mid section between the center ribs port and starboard side of the keel which the owner claims were not repaired as this part DOES NOT FORM PART OF THE BOT STRUCTURE AND THEREFORE THESE CRACKS DO NOT INFER ON THE overall STRENGHT OF THE HULL. he also says that these were not repaied and left visible so as not to hide them from potential buyers. I have included pictures with this text so that you can see exactly the craks.
Can any one tell me if this part is structural and therefore if these cacks reduce the structural strenght of the boat?
