Congratulations on the (potential) new boat. Remember to budget a few boat-bucks at each end for lifts, securing, etc. At least you will not have to re-paint the bottom as it's fresh-to-fresh, and there probably is already a maple leaf courtesy flag on-board! When it arrives, get all that tape off in a hurry. We spent a week running around with denatured alcohol, and even acetone, getting gummy stuff off of all the surfaces after it sat for a month. They sell a clear packing wrap in big-box hardware stores that we found great for wrapping the mast after everything was tied up. I'd give you the last 3/4 of my roll, if you were closer! Have a good move.
