I'll second this, and add "Get a Survey and a Seatrial." I also pay to have leakdown and compression tests on the engines too.
The money you spend in upfront costs will come back to reward you.

See ya,

I second the seatrial and the survey. An older boat, chances are insurance is going to require the survey anyway, so get it done before you buy the boat. Piece of mind, and often if they are good quality surveyors will find something you might have overlooked and you can negotiate price better. You have somone in your court. Seatrial is important, every boat rides a little different, setups make a big difference. You'd be suprised.
