Islander 37

OK I am on the hunt again. I have found an Islander 37 for sale for a good price and is actually a good bit below my price range, but it will need some work. He says standing rigging is original and in good condition, not sure if that is possible on a 1969 boat? Other than the obvious possible maintenance issues that will be found in a good survey does anyone have any experience with the sailing qualities of the Islander 37? How is the build quality on them as well? This is a bit bigger than I was looking at originally, and I understand the cost of maintaining goes up with the square of the length. I had been looking at the 33 to 35 foot range. My immediate use will be as a liveaboard on the Hudson River, but will likely be moving in the next few years to the west coast of Long Island Sound, with goals of some cruising in about 5 years.
