Good off-season check lists?

We're hauling out soon, and our boat has been sailing for the past season after a couple years on the hard and some structural refit (a floor timber and a knee). Oh yeah, and we rode over a rock going 7kts... I would like to sail a little harder next year, and I think this year's off-season inspection is SUPER important. On a boat of this age and station, the rigging bits are, to my mind, most likely to become fatigued.

What is your favorite resource (or recommendations) for a hold-my-hand off-season inspection?

Re: Good off-season check lists?

i look at anything that could have been hurt(keel, hull, etc) and the structural bits opposite and near by, both inside and outside the boat.... i also check everything i used and everything i can see...i dont trust the opinions of other when it comes to what i need to depend on when at sea--ie, my boat, unless those others happen to be contracted by me for repair work, then i want to see what it is that is being repaired and does it really need it vs merely like to have it fixed...

Yes, we will do all the inspecting ourselves, for sure!
