Deck flex?

So, as I previously mentioned, I'm currently driving through New England, making a list of likely boats with the intention of narrowing it down to one for a professional survey at the end of the month. I looked at a keel-stepped Bayfield 29 today and, while the chainplates and shrouds looked good, the interior cabinetry was obviously out of alignment, and had been pulled up by the deck about half an inch around the chainplates (bolted into fiberglass stringers on the inside of the hull). As if the shrouds were over-tightened and the entire hull compressed forcing the deck upwards. owner assured me that it's not a serious issue and had always been like that, but I'd like to see if anyone here has an opinion on the matter.
