Sounds like a fun boat.

If you are going to sail it seasonally in new England, and the boat has paint on it, I use it a season and see how it comes out of the water. No blisters and you are good. Blisters - and you have to go through the nasty, long job of removing all the bottom paint and doing a barrier coat. I'll bet your bottom will look fine forever, don't go looking for work and expense that may be completely un-necessary.
