Look for something clean, no immediate nasty 'smell' when you step below ...

Clean bilges and cubbies are indicative of good care - a clean engine area the same.
Spot on.

Don't be afraid of a boat PROPERLY STORED AND MAINTAINED on the hard. owners, die, move away, or run out of money, or take up golf- circumstances change quickly, but it takes a while to sell a boat. as long as the boat doesn't have a foot of standing water down below because nobody bothered to check the hatches and drains regularly, a boat on the hard can be a bargain.
