Steel boats - things to watch for?

What are the things to consider when buying a steel hull boat? There is this sweet looking boat here: 1986 Custom Blue Water Cruiser Tahitiana Tahiti Ketch sailboat for sale in Maryland and it is made of steel, showing some indications of corrosion, at least on the deck. Sometimes I fear steel hulls (no maintenance experience with them) but they also have obvious advantages, such as strength.
What are your thoughts on steel boats in general, and this boat in particular?
Thank you all...
