Potentially buying Irwin 33 w/ centerboard anyone have any experience/.02$ about it?

Greetings Irwin owners,

The boat I'm looking at (Irwin33) has a centerboard the owners say won't drop so they do not use.
I'd be in favor of this vessel if I could get this fixed and usable.
Also, it looks like the casing around the centerboard is delaminating.
How much of an issue does this pose? Something to address before splash?
There are some other issues like leaking deck fittings and a couple delaminated areas, but
decks seem solid. Any other areas you recommend checking?

Thanks for any replies.
