I wouldn't invest in a surveyor unless you are then really really sure that this is your boat and you don't mind loosing out the money invested if you are not the high bidder at the end. Also, as this is an auction, the price may well go up quite a lot. In deed, only today it went from its starting bid to $2000. There are still 18 days to go in the auction ...
I don't know what to think of the inspection form it says the boat is 30' 10" long and 25' 6" wide, that is a wide boat! Does not look bad for a very basic boat, but it is already bid to what I think it is likely worth and is still not to the reserve price.
