Which Dinghy has less fixing works

I am to buy a sail dinghy to learn sailing. There are 3 available but I only checked 2 of them. All of them require repairs, but can someone help me identify on with less repairing works? They are relatively cheap, asking for 500$. I am checking if it is worth to buy, which one should I choose if so.
I will have to check the Sail and mast in another visit.


Boat 1 has no damage on the bow and hull, but repairs needed for transom:
1. a piece of coat on top of transom
2. Most coat inside of transom is peeled off.






Boat 2 has very clean and sound inside, works to be done:
1. On the bow, some patches to be done
2. on the starboard side, some part of gunwale is off





Which one has relatively less repair work?

Looks like boat 2 to me. A delaminating transom could get big.
