Make certain it is straight. There is always the possibility that the builder screwed up. Most problems can be repaired but, if the builder managed to build a hull that wants to constantly crab to one side it wouldn't be worth the money. If you can get the boat in the water for even a few minutes a crooked keel will show up.
