Re: Angry at my surveyor....
First, while I would only hire an accredited surveyor (SAMS, NAMS), I've become very jaded over the years that they do much of anything to insure quality control. They absolute best survey I've ever had still had notable errors and omissions.
Second, Philzy makes a good point about what would happen if they ommitted something and one was hurt by the failure. Imagine the bowsprit failing under sail and something cutting across someone on the foredeck. I can hear it now, "but she was just surveyed last month, I can't believe this happened". Wood is supposed to be hard. It grows that way. Soft is soft and not good. It's just a question of how not good.
