I have eyes and I am able to discern things like worn out decks, rotten bulkheads, failed tabbings, worn out rigging. And you may be surprised that I even know something about electronics and was even smart enough to turn them on and test them. I also know howe to recognize sails that are in good shape (this boat has a fully battened brand new main on cars)
As for mast step etc, what do you think a surveyor is for?
About the only valid comment you make is the interior cushions, which, though certainly not trashed, are a candidate for replacement in a two or three years.
It was the high quality of electronics and canvas and sails that were an attractive feature.
