Richard Woods often posts on here, so quite possibly he'll be able to answer your questions.

There is also a forum specifically for Woods designs here: Woods Designs Sailing Catamarans

Richard Woods does post on this forum, so you'll likely get info from the best source available.
I think it's wise to have a boat thoroughly surveyed, no matter what the make, and even more important if it happens to be a homebuilt.

....and even more important if its built by 'professionals' who won't ever sail it.
What do you think Alan?

Woods multihulls are at: Woods Designs Sailing Catamarans

There is a design section with study plans, including the Banshee. Forums too: focused on your subject.

I think of Richard Woods designs as being modern Wharrams. They are almost as simple; can be spartan by choice; seaworthy and fast. Don't hobby horse. In other words: excellent.
