Pre purchase survey and mechanical inspection advice?


I have had boat surveyed previously but have not had a mechanic look into the engine. I am buying a boat again and it has 1986 Yanmar 3GM30 fresh water cooled with 3000 hours on it. What does a mechanical inspection entail and would anyone have some sort of a checklist what needs to be done / checked. I have spoken to some people and they said just warm her up. Run the boat at Max RPM for 5 minutes and if it does not overheat and no powdering of belts is noted i should be OK.

Any advice is much appreciated
