Painted Deck

Hi all, I'm looking at a Endeavor 32. This been used in saltwater but for the last 10 years only fresh. I haven't had a survey done yet as I'm still not sure if I will be making an offer. As far as I can tell, I haven't found any soft spots on the deck. Understand that it's winter and in the 20's. One of my conserns is that the deck has been painted, and painted poorly. It looks like they painted it without removing and deck hardware. In places it's starting to check. Should this be a big consern? Oh, it's a 1977, and the asking price is 11K. Is this just a cosmedic issue? How much work would it be to strip it and redo, or can I just smooth out the rough spots and repaint. Or just live with it. The only other issue I can find with the boat is that the port side of the bottom paint is flaking. So it will need to be scrapped and repainted.

Thanks
