Considering a PT 37' 1978

We are considering a 1978 Pacific Trawler. I joined the site in effort to gain some insight to the vessel. a few questions:
1. Is the Hull cored or solid fiberglass?
2. I believe this vessel has the original fuel tanks, 400 gallons in two tanks. what is the life span of these tanks, I think they are steel but unsure since they are painted red.
3. wondering the diameter of the shaft, it appears to be about 2". We plan to upgrade to a PSS shaft seal if we purchase the vessel.
Any other information for a Newbie would be greatly appreciated. We are long time sailors just now looking at the trawler market and so we have a lot to learn for sure. We do like all the positives about this vessel and will be used primarily in Puget Sound.
Thank you for your help!
