Free Columbia 22, how to asses sails, keel bolts...

I was poking around some boat yards and came across a columbia 22. According to the marina staff, the boat has been out of the water for two years and the owner is looking for someone to take it off their hands.

So my questions are: how can I judge the quality of the sails, hull and keel bolts and what else should I be looking for.

Here are some pictures from my cameraphone.

One thing to know, most boats that are free are not worth taking, as the costs of fixing them up will often cost more than a boat that doesn't need those same repairs.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
