What you describe are VERY minor, easibly fixable and replaceable.
Specificaly what you should be looking for on a P30 would be things that even a surveyor would miss: the beginnings of rot at the base of the compression post (do a tiny drill hole) - if there IS **unseen** rot you wont be able to close the head door; rot under the cockpit coaming; thinning of the mast butt as it sits in its deck socket; if the A4 has enough ''meat'' left by removing an exhaust header bolt and going in with a probe to count **at least 3-4** threads - by removing the rudder post cap and inspecting that there is enough metal left to prevent the rudder from falling off; that there is no evidence of poor land storage that caused extreme hull flex - especialy under the ice box. --- all very costly and generally missed / ignored by most surveyors.
