Should I buy a Coronado 32

I cannot find much information on this boat. It is a 1973 coronado with center cockpit and cast iron keel. One of my friends said that it would sail like a cork in the ocean because of the high freeboard. Another friend commented that it is a windabago, and that the wind would push it around. Others have negative comments on the cast iron keel indicating that rust would be a problem. It is not that I don't value their opinions, but they are novice sailors like me. I would be cruising off the coast of Southern California. The boat has been well maintained. Does anyone want to give me their opinion? Thanks.
