Congrats and welcome aboard!

I agree wholeheartedly with the advice re: getting a survey. This will give you a much better picture of what needs to be done (i.e.: what will make/keep her seaworthy) versus what would be nice to have done (cosmetic/convenience things).

I don't know what kind of boat you have...do a bit of looking and see if there is some sort of organization of folks who have your same type of boat. These organizations can be great resources for very specific questions about your particular boat.

You didn't mention how much sailing experience you have...if you are new to sailing as well as to boat ownership, a good class will be well worth the money and time.

Again, welcome!
