Re: Angry at my surveyor....

Sorry, I didn't put all of that very well.. It's true price was a large factor for the insurance survey, and you're right about my 'getting what I paid for'. In the case of the last "dictated" survey there were no findings beyond a burnt out nav light. The report was a photocopy of the handwritten/hand drawn working document I watched him fill out. A far cry from the pre purchase survey we had when we bought.

Anyhow I did not intend any disrespect to the many competent surveyors, and apologize if it came out that way...
