While your boat is a bit on the small side there is no reason why you could not benefit from a brief inspection by a surveyor who knows something about rigging and sailboats. If you are going to insure the boat you may need to have a survey for the ins. company (liability only through your homeowners/auto ins. agent is not a bad idea).
Having said that, there is a lot you can do yourself. One of our illustrious members has made a boat inspection thread with a lot of info in it: Boat Inspection Trip Tips
Part of the equation is what you intend to do with this boat. Having 'professionals' look at it should give you some peace of mind.
Good luck.
