I like this Sabre 28 BUT.....

I was looking at a Sabre 28 yesterday and came away really impressed with the whole boat design and reviews. Took some pictures but there are two things that really concern me regarding this Sabre and has to do with the Chainplates which show signs of water intrusion and the cabin floor (one of the bilge covers falls into the bilge as it looks like the supporting board is gone. See pictures.

Seems like a good price so maybe it's just too good to be true. The rest of the boat looks great and I do not see water intrusion anywhere else. All doors close perfectly but the mast is down as the boat is on the hard.

Thanks for any comments suggestions. I don't want to throw away $3-500 on a survey just to be told everything needs to be redone. much to re-do the sole and bulkheads?
