Just as an FYI, if you are over five feet, it is unlikely you are going to find many boats in this size range that you can stand up in. You should go look at some more boats, its likely that you can find a much better one for $1000-$2000 more that you'll actually end up with less money in in the end. IMHO
I know what your saying about a putting more money in up front. And I don't know how much I would put into that boat. Part of its problem is its very very very dirty. Just from that 1 boat I know if I wanted to get a boat to keep for some time it would be closer to the 30' side for the head room alone.

Any idea if that rust in top of the keel area is really bad?
