Re: I've taken your advice...and found a better boat
If the guy won't let you take it out and drive it around then how will you know how well that engine is running. Sitting in nuetral it might pur like a kitten, put it in gear and it might jump all over the place. Read up on what standing rigging should and shouldn't look like, if the wire is all rusty, well... Walk heavy footed on the deck, ...Oh, there is so much to look for, but most of it can be seen at a glance if you know what you are looking at. Good luck, it looks like a good deal to me.
