Exclamation Ericson 27-1975 Creaking Deck

My mom and i are looking for a good liveaboard boat. The Ericson 27 has come around and we are looking at it as a viable option. There is one for sale for a good price and has so many things we want-no holding tank, marine ac..9' beam etc.

The problem is that the guy said when he stands on the tip of the boat above the Vberth the deck creaks (deck delamination?). Should we be concerned about this? We plan on having a survey done but im wondering if this could turn into a big problem in the future. Will the deck continue to rot if it already has some deck rot?

Does anyone have any information on where the wood is located exactly in the deck and what problems this could cause.

Thanks so much again for help in my pursuit for my moms perfect liveaboard boat.
