Repair Do I need to mitigate hull crazing?

I just got a couple of old but very cheap laser hulls. First time boat owner, long time sailer.

I have 2 areas that I am not sure if I should leave or if I should sand down and apply new gelcoat?

I’d appreciate any thoughts!

Cheers!

I would be worried about the cracks that appear to be under the mast step. It suggests that reinforcing is needed in the base of the mast hole, especially if water leaks out of it

Thank you. You have a keen, but nothing to worry about in this case. Those “terrible” cracks below the mast step are actually something that fell from a tree - that stuff is everywhere.

Cheers!
