The hull and hull to deck joints have no major issues. Good quality Gelcoat over entire hull.

The transom has a tendency to have gelcoat cracks in the corners inside the bilge area.



The Deck has a tendency to have gelcoat cracks around the cleats, both forward and aft. Also beware of cracking on the hatch for the anchor locker and the rain edge.



The original factory wiring and electrical connections have a tendency to be solid and have no issues.



The factory power was well installed. The power, (engine) was typically installed and provided by individual dealers.  The fuel tank has a tendency to leak after 10 or more years and cause issues with the foam and right side stringer.
