I wouldn't worry about the ports if the hulls are otherwise solid.
I don't see a jib furler (which is the standard setup, I believe)? Also, you may already know this but, unless you have some other custom rigging, the H-14T does not have a separate forestay (like the H16)......the luff wire in the jib IS the (only) forestay. This means you have to step the mast each time you sail or leave the jib up. (The 14 mast is much lighter than the 16 and can be easily raised solo using the cheater rope method.) With a furler and snorkle (cover), leaving the jib up is a reasonable alternative. (This is what I do most of the time.) There are other, more complicated alternative ways to set it up with a zippered jib luff or a separate forestay, but those would involve additional rigging.
I race a good bit and that gives me my fill of trying to sail as high and low as possible, so I like to fly around on a beam reach when daysailing. A ~10 inch long strip of ~2 inch wide non-skid tape placed along the outer deck lip back by those rear ports will aid that effort if you are inclined to do the same.
Sail the heck out of it, and, if you enjoy it, you'll get your money's worth out of it fairly quickly. Otherwise, it sounds like you can resell it, and the learning experience will not have been too expensive.
