Buying a yacht

Hopefully someone might be able to offer some sound advice. We are considering purchasing a 36ft Roberts yacht. It''s history informs it was built circa 1977. However it sank, has been salvaged and the hull repaired. It appears dry, everything is gutted, the hull has been faired and ready to start again. What should we look for in the hull? Would experienced sailors guard against taking up this project? I am also keen to hear of any folklore about sailing in ships that have been salvaged - how do we guard against the Gods? Many thanks
