American Mariner?

I'm going to take a look at at 22' American Mariner, 1977 this weekend. I can only find a few things about them online and I was looking to see if anyone has any personal experience with them?

It's free (I'd be taking over the dock fees, registration and insurance), needs a little work on the engine (the carburetors get a little gunked up if it's not used for a while), has two-year-old sails that have been used three times.

There is a surveryor associate in Las Vegas (the boat is in Lake Mead, about thrity minutes out of town), does it matter if a surveyor is accredited by SAMS? Would a surveyor give a list of everything wrong on the boat, or just recommend yea or nay on a purchase (seeing as I wouldn't be paying anything for the boat).

Sorry if these questions have been asked and answered before, but I couldn't find the answers through the search. Right now I'm thinking I should just do it, because it's a good place to learn-- and eventually I'll need to be able to do repairs myself, up to and including rebuilding an engine. . .
