Similarly to what sailingdog suggested, I've learned much about my boat on the "first date" by taking digital photos . . . hundreds of them.
Taking general photos of the exterior and cabins enables zooming in to obscure components when back at your computer. Additionally, by settting the camera to auto-exposure/focus mode and reaching deep into engine bilge cavities, under floorboards and inside lockers, you will see many other details not obvious from your initial visual inspection.
I have to add however, that I wasn't horrified by anything - more like ecstatic over all the boat's qualities and great things I found.
