IMHO, you should do whatever the surveyor asks to be done. If he's good, that will include a thorough check of the:

furler (if there is one)
stuffing box
motor mounts

The other things people mention should be done, but don't have to be part of the sea trial.

If there is a broker you should not expect the owner to be present. It's the broker's job to do the work of selling the boat. If the broker is good, he won't let you dock the boat, or otherwise risk damaging it.

Good luck,
