Dehler 31

Any Dehler 31 Owners or previous owners out there? I am intrigued by this boat and thinking seious about it. You can get a little more info about my particulars from my previous post of "To Buy or Not to Buy". The closest one is aprox. 800 Miles as the crow flies so before I fly out to look I was hoping to get some input from some of you folks that have experience with the boat. I can tell by some of the PHRF ratings that I have seen for this boat, and by looking at the relatively short waterline, light weight and fractional rig that it must accelerate readily in light air to have such a low phrf. The thing that concerns me the most is the possibility of water intrusion into the cored hull through the screws that are used to install the rubstrakes. Anyone know of any problems with this. I know that Sailing dog did an excellent post regarding first inspections and addressed the moisture meter but seems as though the boat would have to be hauled to test the hull. Most of the other issues I don't see as being too much of a problem but I am wondering about the access into the head, it seems a little quirkee from the layout drawings as well as the pictures that I have seen. Any thoughts ?
