You will likely find some areas of wet deck core but depending on degree and planned useage this may not be as big an issue as some would make it. The DC systems are generally quite good but the AC system will likely require re-wiring due to the use of solid core copper conductors. Rewiring the AC system is a simple job on a CS compared to other Canadian boats. Many CS with propane stoves have the propane locker drain T'd into a scupper hose and while this is not kosher, it is an easy fix. Depending on model year you may find gate valves instead od proper seacocks and these should be changed. You will find a number of Standards related issues but structural issues on a CS (Merlin excepted) are quite rare. They did have a couple of years with minor blister issues but all that I have seen have been no deeper than the gelcoat and should be considered a cosmetic issue only.
