J-30 Questions....opinions?

I''m looking at an older J-30 (haven''t seen it yet). I''ve got access to good priced hardware, cordage, etc. and am BEGGING everyone to regale me with what could be wrong with this thing. It''s in the caribbean and will probably be used for moderate racing/weekending. I live here year-round. I''ve cruised for years and know glass, rigging, etc., but don''t know exactly what to look for in a reasonably capable racer and what can be done to improve performance hull-wise. New sails probably goes without saying. I ''spect this one is rough. Asking $7,500. Keel bolts my first concern. After that, I can pretty much fix anything. What do I look for and where? KW
