Uh, if you do get repair the boat you will want the centerboard to be functional. Is the Sailstar made by Bristol (which has a good reputation) or another mfr'er?
Boat's of that age tend to have pretty thick hulls (if fiberglass) as they did not really know how little they could use. Laminate technology has also come a long way since the late 60's. That said, my Tartan 27' is from 1967 and still floats and sails.
