Looking at Buying a Tartan 30 1976

I'm looking at buying a 1976 Tartan 30 Hull Number 366.

The boat is currently sitting in a backyard on blocks with some minor hull damage on leading edges. Other wise the hull looks decent.

The interior lining has been pulled out, and the majority of the wood has been pulled out. This boat does have a aft galley, diesel, & older wiring.

My plan would be to replace wiring, hoses for water, and over time upgrade the rest.

Does anybody have links to sites explaining what they did for wiring (any sites that could help) on a tartan 30, upgrades from bare bones, and details on how to replace/fix issues like leaking chain planes, stem fitting and replacing/upgrading ports.

My other question would be is this a good boat for a single guy to live aboard and do some off shore sailing???
