Inspection Checklist

Hello, i'm sure this topic has been covered but not for years...that i could find.

We would like a rigorous pre-purchase inspection checklist.

We are soon going boat shopping (again) for a cruising sailboat and we plan on doing initial inspections ourselves. Follow-up would be by Surveyor, Rigger and engine/equipment analysis. We have owned sailboats and fishing boats in the past. We have multiple books e.g. Outfitting the offshore cruising sailboat by Peter Berman....20 years of Practical Sailor...do most of our maintenance etc.

If anyone has one they are willing to share it would be most appreciated

Thanx!
