Newbie seeks advice from Sailing Gods

I have the opportunity to purchase a ''75 H16 for $500-700. The main mast has some 15 or so small holes and is certainly not new. The Jib (the one on the front?) has 5 or so. All Quater size or smaller.

The right hull seems to have some "dead" styrofoam in that when you press or step on it, the sound of crunching styrofoam can be heard. The 18" circular area where the tramp connects to the hull is solid (does not give). Everything else seems cosmetic.

Do I need to be concerned or should I keep looking.

Thanks afore hand,

Scott

Scott , I bought a 16ft hobie cat w/trailer, main and jib in good condition , trapez and basically everything else I could ever need ,oh yeah hulls in excellent shape. I just needed to clean everything up. Price $900. I guess it could depend on where you live. I live in Wrightsville Bch, Nc and we have alot of hobies so your deal would not be good. I would look around some more. thanks thomas
