Boyd, what is your sailing experience? (i.e. first boat, but not new to sailing?)

Whether the boat is new or used, I'd suggest planning on some time to take it out for shakedown, a day cruise or perhaps a few days down to the keys, etc., and then plan on something between 48 hours and a week to obtain spares and parts and do whatever prep it needs before taking the boat home. It might need nothing...or it might need things that will take a week to arrive and three more days to fit and check out again.
