11 steps with multiple sub-steps.
Here is another way.

My friend has bought two boats a Cataline 27 and 30 with just about the following process. He is a big picture guy.

The following is how the conversation went one afternoon.
  1. Friend: Dave I want to buy a sailboat want to come along.
  2. Me: Sure
  3. Friend to Broker: I want to buy a sailboat and have about 10,000
  4. Broker: You need at least 15,000
  5. Friend: OK but I have to see it first.
  6. Broker: Follow me
  7. Broker: In front of the boat "It's a great deal".
  8. Friend: I'll take it.
  9. Broker: Follow me
  10. Broker at desk: Sign these papers
  11. Broker Smiling: Congratulations you own a boat.
See exactly 11 steps just shorter ones.
I'm not even exaggerating that much.
The amazing thing is that we have been sailing our buts off the last three years and having a great time.
His way works for him.
I of course waste hours a week on sailnet reading about what boat to buy
