My First Boat!

Ok so from what I have read there is a lot of controversy over this boat. But since the price was perfect for me (Free) and the exterior is in good condition just the inside being partially gutted it was perfect for my first boat. I got myself a 27 ft. Bayliner Buccaneer. It is going to be a project for my soon and I to rebuild together. We are both very excited so if you dont like the choice of boat I dont really care. lol. We Love it. I was wondering if there is anything anyone can tell me about this boat. Has anyone owned one themselves? We are new to sailing so honestly not sure where to start in finding out what type of sails to buy or anything. I do have a friend helping us out who rebuilds boats, mostly hydroplanes though, he doesn't have any experience with sailboats.

Not exactly sure, Will be picking up the boat next week to move to my place. Is there a place on the boat where it would be like a tag or something? What are the 4 models it could be?
