As with any boat of this vintage, bulkhead tabbing, condition of bulkheads and deck, chainplates and all deck hardware needs serious inspection and proper corrective measures taken. During this process, upgrade where necessary depending on your intended use. The I36 is one of the more memorable production boats I sailed on in the late 70's-early 80's.
