wheelhouse is on a distinguished road
Gratz on the boat. Your request is a tall order though. There's a lot more stuff to learn and understand than can be communicated via electronic messaging. Now would be a good time to learn the locations of seacocks, make sure they work - easier to replace out of the water than in. Verify rigging (standing and running) are ok, as well as mast/ post, and chainplates. Trace wiring, plumbing, etc. That year probably had a Palmer engine in it, it it doesnt now, then it been changed out, good time to change oil, check plugs, points, water pump impeller, check the exhaust system for holes, check the fuel lines for leaks. Go thru sails to look for damage that could be repaired during the winter.
