purchase agreement

I''m buying a sailboat directly from the seller and am looking for a purchase agreement. The offer has already been made so I''m mainly just looking for some kind of sample agreement that I can modify to my particular needs to use at the closing. Does anyone have a sample agreement I could copy? My email address is millerkm81@yahoo.com.
Thanks a lot
