(rubrail is pushed down slightly) More of an impact crack, not a "stress" crack. IMHO
The chain plate isn't attached to the deck. There is a plate riveted to the deck but the chainplate passes through it and attached to the hull by those bolts in the picture. Not a big deal to repair.
I think I have to agree with mdbee on the crack. Looks like the owner hit something.
I would also question if the title is clean before putting in an offer.
But more importantly, why a Mac 26? You couldn't get me to take one for free. They don't sail well. They don't motor well. Either pick a sailboat or a power boat but never both.
