need feed back on a possible boat purchase..

My Wife and I found a Spindrift, 1984 sloop, made by Formosa building yard. The yacht is immaculately clean and well maintained. I love the lay out and the wood work is impeccable. The boat had new rigging including mast and boon replaced in 2005. This is a HEAVY displacement sloop that should be able to take a beating and keep on tickin. It should track like a train and be very forgiving, and easy on an auto pilot, This boat should "heave to" and hopefully claw its way of a lee shore, But I dont know to much about this particular boat except its got an all glass hull and is dry as a bone inside. The owner wants around 130K for the boat. I wish this boat was faster but I can't afford an Oyster or Swan. Thanks for listening.
