Are you sure you want to open Pandora’s box?
The boat might be floating but you never know what's holding it up or what the bottom looks like. In boats you really get what you pay for. It's going to cost you a great deal of money to get the boat up to standards and chances are you will be finding problems for years to come. I would advise you not to get this boat but to find one better suited for a beginner boater without reconstruction experience.
Good luck and welcome to sailing!
