Opinions needed on 1974 34' Columbia Mark II

I've stumbled onto what looks like an excellent boat in my area and I need some opinions about this craft. It is flush deck model with high freeboard and 7' head room down below. I'm 6'6" so that works perfect for me. This boat seems to meet most of my criteria that I had set before hand. I think I can pick it up for around $15k. It is remarkably clean and well kept. No delamination exists on the deck from what I can tell.

If anyone out there has sailed a boat like this one before please jump in and give me your opinions about it. One of the specific points I'm interested in is how she handles offshore - does she have a good motion?

Something funny going on here

Any one notice that Gary's post from earlier today is freakishly similar to that on the link provided by SF - and it's a year and a half old!?!?
