small sailing boat project

Can anyone give me a brief list of things to look at when considering buying a fiber glass 21ft sailing boat for a rennovation project. There is one I am interested in but would like to know what to inspect before I buy it. What problems areas should be avoided?

Thats a lot to ask for. What kind helps.
Is keel swing keel or centerboard ? check for leaks in air tank if they have them. If foam ,is water in the foam? Wood work ok??? Check all the rigging, Mast , spreaders,
look at the bottom keel from front to back of the boat and see that it dont bow down .From some one pulled the rigging to tight on the mast or the cabin roof if mast is set that way. Sails ok?
Rudder post ok?? Check all winches ok set to deck ok wood blocks under them inside the boat.
the halyard and spinnaker sheet good. Go and ask for a Cat.
Hope this helps some have a good one .
