Are the discoloration marks in this hot tub signs that the fiberglass is rotten?

We have been offered a hot tub for free. There is some minor mechanical work needed, but we're not too afraid of that. The bigger concern is the discoloration to the fiberglass and we are wondering if it might mean that the fiberglass is rotten.
Please see this picture
The hot tub has been stored on its side for the last several months. As you can see, it is a bit dirty. What's more concerning, though, is all the spots and streaks. They seem to be a part of the fiberglass itself, now. We can't tell/don't know if they are the starts of pinholes or other concerns.
Can anyone tell us if this is a worry? If so, is it easily fixable? Would you recommend taking this free hot tub?
