I was on a prolonged boat hunt recently for my 'forever' boat.
Make up a checklist with space to make notes and take a digital camera. Photograph everything and write up negative points in as much detail as you can.
I used Casey's book to help me pre survey boats. I did pay for my boat to be surveyed as it had some issues I felt needed a professional opinion.
