Congratulations on the survey. The prop had better be bronze, not brass. Brass is not suitable for use on boats, especially in salt water.
Waterlift is a term referring to the engine's exhaust system. Be aware, that trying to start an engine with a waterlift muffler for an extended period of time can flood the engine with water, and cause major damage.
Something is definitely wrong with the Furlex, since they're relatively bulletproof.
Did the surveyor give you a comprehensive written report?
I would re-think the saltwater faucet for the galley sink. A saltwater faucet can really save fresh water on a long passage.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
