The 272 is probably the best all around model that Baja ever built. We really enjoyed the 2001 model that we owned a couple of seasons. The one major complaint I have had on all three Baja models I have owned is that there are too many areas that collect water in the bilge. I actually remember the 272 as being the wrost of them all. When I would wash it I always had to towel dry water in certain areas. This is pretty normal because they simply did not but enough holes through the stringers to allow the water to drain properly.
I would clean it up real good using simple green or something similiar and work hard to keep the water cleaned up and the bilge dry from now own and all should be good as long as there is not already water damage.
If you ever have to do any repairs on stringers you need to hook up with Kevin Brown at Lakeway Repair in Bucyrus, Ohio and he will make it better than new and get it draining for you.
Good luck with the boat and I hope you have a really good boating season.
