Buying a CS 30

I have an accepted offer on a CS 30.
1986 boat. It's in pretty good condition but needs some work after 2 yrs on the hard.

Anything specific I should watch out for in a survey?
A prior insurance survey mentioned a small crack at the keel-hull joint.
I've heard there can be some water intrusion issues in the wood behind the nav desk.
Plus I have seen comments about adding an extension on to the holding tank drain.

Engine is apparently in good shape. Talked with the mechanic who has been maintaining the Volvo for the last several years - he says it was in fair shape when he last winterized it (although he was not a fan of the the Volvo diesel in general as he feels the parts are too expensive and the motor is not as reliable as a yanmar).

Any advice is appreciated.
