Turns out the current owner didn't have the boat surveyed when he bought in '05. I was provided a copy of an '04 insurance survey from the previous owner. That survey was done with a winter cover on the boat and only says "Structural Strength of Hull: Appears original; acceptable." If it was there, and visible, at the time, the gelcoat mismatch could easily have been missed because there was a winter cover in place when that survey was done. Without any reason to go looking, the surveyor wouldn't necessarily have removed several screws to look at the hull behind that particular settee.
There is another fiberglass repair to fix a leak from the cockpit into the galley which appears completely unrelated to the hull photos I posted. Nearby wood indicates this 2nd area had been leaking for quite a while. I was told, the owner "doesn't have any more information about either area." The diesel is original, 32 years old, and showing its age, so... although she's a very nice boat, there are enough issues that I'm continuing my hunt. I'm a bit disappointed because I thought this would be the one.
