That's not a serious issue, especially if they are small and shallow. If you want the boat, buy it. Repair, if needed, is simple for blisters that don't go deep in the the laminate.
I have hauled a boat and seen small blisters like that, and neglected to mark them when it came out of the water
. Came back after the boat was sitting dry for a week, and they were all gone...
