Thanks for the Responses -
Both here and private. I ended up using Peter Hunt. He was very thorough and explained things well. His approach was to do a section at a time (foredeck, mid deck, cockpit, engine, etc.) make notes, then review with me. I generally kept out of his way unless he pointed something out or I had a specific question. The things that he did find he explained how severe, whether it should be a deal killer, suggested time frame for fixing, and an approach, material to fix, etc. Final result was a 15 page document with descriptive text and bulletized highlights.
No major deal killers but a couple of safety things that the seller easily and quickly fixed.
Tomorrow is the first sail under the new owners. We invited the previous owner to show us the ropes.
