Ranger 23 experiences?

Hi,

I'm going to look at a Ranger 23 tonight and was wondering if anyone on the boards knows of any particular issues I should check for. The boat is a 1976 with the tall rig.

I read the review section of sailnet and it looks like the usual culprits need to be looked at; anything bolted through the deck and the rigging.

Anything else? One other question is from the picture this looks like a mast head rig and my current Ranger is a 7/8 fractional rig. What kind of difference will that make in how she sails from the standpoint of speed and handling at different points of sail?

As always any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Mike
