1979 C&C 33 opinions? trouble spots?

Going to have a look at one with a friend who is considering purchasing as a coastal/Bahamas cruiser. I've got a pretty good bit of experience but I've never looked at a C&C. Just looking for any tips related to this boat, any problem areas to look for that might not be obvious at first glance. The vessel is on the hard.

C&C makes a great performance boat. Not the most luxurious but very good up wind and seaworthy. Be carefull of soft spots in the deck. C&C was a great boat builder in there day 70's and 80's. Now they are owned by Tartan Yachts and they are still being made to perform great on the race course.

Good luck and have fun,
