No I do not have a problem with Taiwan boats but the time built and location might suggest the building skills and quality control used. It appears teh boat builders in the early 80's were numerous and with the exception of Marine trader and Albin marine inspectors were not on site. Each boat seems to be different and a good surveyor will be able to make a determination. Regarding seakeeping I am not sure the owner would be the best to ask especially if anxious to sell. Also, many people with personal experiences whould probably give a better over all view.
