Re: any upcoming issues?
I would wonder how rain water was kept out of the bilge. How does it look. Best way to store a boat long term is to drill a drain hole into the bilge to get rid of any water that finds its way in over time. If that wasn't done I would want to inspect the bilge for freeze cracks and keel bolts carefully.
Was the rig up? Were the stands on pavement or dirt? What kind of boat? Some builders make hulls that are somewhat flexible and could be distorted a bit.
Check engine alignment and packing.
I would do a close survey of chain plates as well as everything else. A working boat in the water tells you a lot. A boat sitting for a long time is a question mark. Might be fine but needs to be closely checked out.
