Re: Survey Repairs
No and No...
However you may have found a particularly bad example (not that I'd put any stock in the repair estimate if nobody's come to check it out)
If you're attracted by a substantially lower price than market value then all of this may well be true.. and there was a reason for the lower price.
In today's market, in that niche I doubt there's a reason to buy a boat with so many potential problems right off... I'd keep looking.
