Hull - check it from the pier and the boat. All bumps, scratches, and broken or missing parts should be noted in the takeover report.
Bilge pump - check that it works properly.
Cable winch - does it spin easily? How many levers are there, and are they in good working order?
Metal fittings - the small wheels on all metal fittings should spin easily. Also, check the stopper.
Mast - the mast must stand in an upright position. The cramps should not be too tight or too loose. Also, the crosses should be in a good place.
Instruments - switch on and check the function of the boat's instruments. This includes indicators for engine speed, wind direction, depth, speed, and distance, as well as the GPS and anything else on board.
Anchor with chain or rope - check the length of the chain and the strength of the cable winch. Also, check if the chain or rope is fixed to the boat.
Canvas - unfold the canvas and check its condition. Don't forget the spinnaker/gennaker (if one is on the boat).
Water hose - check its length and look for any signs of rotting. Also, check the sealing gasket.
Sunblind - check if there are enough ropes for mounting.
Lifeboat - is the rubber damaged? Could this cause a leak? Is the equipment for the helms damaged? Check if the fuel tank is full and has an outboard engine. Also, check the spark plugs and the range of tools supplied onboard.
Life raft - where is it, and how does it work?
Fuel tank cap – is it marked correctly? Find out which tank is water and which is fuel.
