As mentioned, you won't sail it yourself. The owner isn't even likely to agree to that.

While many, if not most, hull surveys are done with a quick haul, I've been counseled that an older hull should be out of the water for at least 24 hrs to properly examine for moisture. I can't back it up, but you may want to discuss this with the surveyor in advance.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
