Aside from the more obvious things to check (chainplates, soft deck areas, standing rigging) - pay careful attention to the keel bolts. If they look like rusty lumps you are in for an expensive repair. I don't think I have ever seen a C28 with original keel bolts where they didn't need to be replaced.
