New Horizons 26? Swing keel fixed in up position?

I've been surfing SailNet for a while and learning a lot, but now I have a question...or two.

I'm finally going to purchase my own boat to live aboard. I've found a New Horizons 26 that needs some work, but it's available for the right price. Sadly, there were only 175 of these made by Ray Greene in Toledo, OH. It's been difficult to find information, remodel jobs or just a general review of how they sail. If anyone has heard of or sailed a New Horizons 26, let me know what you think.

Also, regarding swing keels, it appears that the centerboard on this sailboat has been glassed into the keel. Should this be of concern?

Thank you in advance!
