Re: Boat Buying Costs
Survey will be closer to $800, usually they charge in the $20-$25 per foot range. If you have to hire a separate rigger to survey the rigging then that'll be probably near $300, they charge by the hour usually. I'd say realistically $200 for cleaning stuff.
The biggest surprise with my $15k buy was and registration fees with DMV at 10%, but I have no clue what Canada does for that.
Point being on my $15k purchase, I shoveled out an additional $4000 in a week on my credit card just for all the other stuff, mostly things you already brought up or others mentioned (immediate maintenance, haul outs, random small fixes)
Smart of you to think of it from accounting stand points and have a buffer/allowance for unexpected costs.
Good luck it's exciting!
