Macgregor 22 purchase

Greetings all:
I am now living in the Port Washington area of Long Island and had to leave my boat back in TX.

I took a look at a macgregor 22 recently and well the price is right.

the good:
the price, the outboard is old but well maintained, trailer included (everything titled), both main and jib about a year old and look pretty good, rolling furler is simple and in working order, deck hardware old but functioning

the bad:
as it is a 72 she is not the prettiest gal out there, it has been in the water for a year (winter included) so there is some expected slime buildup, brite work and rigging need some love.

the ugly:
definitely concerns with the standing rigging, the crank and cable to adjust the keel are ready to be replaced, couldnt give it the

my question for all is: anything else about this i should take an extra look at before pulling the trigger? any gotchas or experience with this model?

thanks as always!
