Both Aft Doors wont close on a 1990 P33

I'm about to make an offer on a 1990 P33.. everything on the boat appears in order outside of a couple of leaks that need fixing.. the only thing that bothers me is that the door to the head and the door to the aft cuddy both dont close. the reason they don't close is not from the top but from the sides.. they both hit on the sides as if the hull got squeezed together, but i dont see any indication of this..

anyone experience this or know what the heck could have caused it? I'm trying to figure out if i want to make a bid on her or not... the cuddy door is off by a good half inch, the head door is off by 1/4 inch.

thanks.

Hulls often deform when stored on the hard for any length of time with this as a common result. If it's on the hard, simply putting her back in the water will solve the problem in a short time.

I know this is old but I cannot believe that no one has mentioned mast post compression issues.
