Question? Did you not take the boat for a test sail as part of the pre-purchase process? Ditto on hauling her out as part of the survey
? And those are just a couple of the standard checks.
So if they were skipped, you'd be wise to do a good bit of studying on the boat buying
process. Probably before having her hauled, so that you're more knowledgeable of what bo both expect, & look at when you do have her hauled.
That, & vett a few surveyors, & then have the top one present when you have the boat hauled. So that he can inspect things in order to make recommendations to you in terms of what maintenance
below the waterline she may need... aside from a good cleaning
, & probably new antifouling.
There's plenty of info on both pre-purchase checks, & checklists here on the forums
, as well as online. And the same is true about surveys, & surveyors. With boatpoker's
