islander 30 vs Sabre 30

I''m ready to move up from a 24ft Allied Greenwich to a 30''boat. I found an 82 Islander with a diesel,wheel and furler system in good shape for 15K. I also found a 79 Sabre 30 that has a core problem in the cabin deck area(high moisture reading)for around the same price. I know the Sabre is suppose to be a well made boat but i''ve been told that some ofthe older ones did have some soft deck problems. I''m not overly familiar with the Islander line but it seems to be well made and is in nice condition. Does anyone have experience with Islanders and their sailing charastics. How about doing deck core repairs. Is it beyond the ability of a person with average building and repair skills, Thanks for any responses.
