Re: Through hulls and hoses

First off congratulations on the boat. I would suggest you do not bother the surveyor with asking about what each hose does you may distract him from finding other things you need to know about. I would not be concerned about the hoses till you own the boat you may find that the deal will not go through for any number of reasons. you should spend some time with the owner after the check is signed and then ask about things like the hoses.

That said it is a good idea to label stuff. I recommend you get one of those brother label makers. Hoses can sometimes be hard to label. You can use the basic label from the label maker and then wrap some clear packing tape around the hose to help it stay in place long term.

Good luck and I hope it all goes well and you get a good boat.
