So the good lawyer comment, which is quite wise, should include an engine mechanic and rigger as part of the team.
I agree, yet, it can get complicated.

For example, one surveyor I used was also a certified Yanmar mechanic. He did a compression check, looked at the alignment, etc. He also did a visual on the rigging and suggested I get a rigger to look at it.

It would also depend on the price point of the boat. For example, if the rigging is 40 yrs old I might put my rigging $$ into simply replacing the standing rigging.
