PSC 37 Purchase

Just so we are clear what we're discussing. This is our first boat purchase.

It is a 2004 model, engine has fewer than 600 hours on it. We will be having a survey done (I am also looking for surveyor recommendations in Annapolis area). Boat has been very lightly used. Let's face it, being just over 2 years old, a boat of this quality is for all intents and purposes new.

As best as I can tell, that number of hours on a diesel should be considered negligible - correct? Should I still have a diesel surveyor evaluate the engine, in addition to the surveyor who is checking out the rest of the boat?

With fairly moderate to light use, what would be the expected life of a set of sails?

As for the rest of the systems, I'll let the surveyor evaluate. But is there anything else I should be looking at on a 37 of this vintage?
