No paper products in an otherwise clean boat may be an indication.

Looking inside lockers, behind hull liners, and such will often tell you if the boat has seen more than its fair share of water. Signs, like an all new interior are usually fairly suspect in a boat for sale.

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.

On the more serious note, there will also usually be a water line stain in any woodworking, and green corrosion on any wiring below that level (see especially behind counters and panels) and similar rust stains on screw heads or engine parts, again below that level.

Look under/behind/beyond the obvious to find things like this.
