Is this a sign that the stringers and framing are destroyed? Or could they be intact and the bones are still solid?

Any chance what the surveyor found as delamination is only cosmetic? Or is there no doubt that this sailboat is no longer fit for use?
Sounds like you are trying to convince yourself that it would be OK to buy this boat. There are lots of boats out there. I doubt that this is a specific Bene issue. While people can chime in on your pictures, none of use are actually there as your surveyor was. That's what he gets paid to do, I would go with what he said as he was on the boat. Keep looking, you will find the boat that works best for you.
