Catalina 27 liner stress cracks

I am considering buying a 1980 C27. Well equipped and just what I am looking for except lots of stress cracks in floor by entrance to head, along the floor of cabin, underseats (dinette model). The keel bolts have some rust on the nuts and when the surveyor tapped on them the forward ones did have a little difference in sound. We have no lift near hear to inspect the join of keel to hull. Is this worth persuing or are those cracks an indication of too much hull flex or a keel that moves around.
