Need purchasing advice on Ericson 35-2

I have the chance to buy a 1973 Ericson 35-2 for 8k. It has no motor but the shaft and prop is still in. the top side needs some paint but otherwise the inside looks great. If i was to buy it my thoughts were to put a diesel in instead of the atomic 4 wich it had. How sea worthy are these boats? Coast or open water? I also noticed theres no compresion post inside. Surfing the net i saw that some had none. Is this normal and would it be advised to put one in or leave it the way it is. I know nothing of these Ericsons so any and all advice would be helpfull. Also is there anything i should lookout for that may be bad on this boat because im thinking of buying it for a liveaboard. thanks in advance
