Inspect the through-hulls, especially if they are bronze.
Inspect prop shaft, cutlass bearing, stuffing box, prop, zincs, rudder shaft, rudder gudgeons and pintles or bearings.
Inspect and maintain seacocks. Replace if necessary.
Inspect hull-keel join.
Inspect pivot pin and swingkeel/centerboard if necessary.
It would really help if you said what kind of boat you had, as some specific issues may be relevant to your boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
