Find a good surveyor. You'll need one for insurance purposes if you plan to insure her. A good surveyor will be able to answer all of the many questions you'll need to ask. The HP on most engines isn't always what is claimed by the manufacturer. When and if you take her out for a sea trial, you'll find out just how suitable the engine is. If you're cruising grounds have significant tidal action, you'll find that some extra umph will help get you back to the dock during an ebb tide.
