Re: Help pinpointing a leak

My comment is about a surveyor who doesn't remove the floor boards to check under them. I find that incompetent. What did he check then, everything in sight, nothing behind covers? Isn't this why you hire a surveyor, to discover stuff you don't know and protect you from stuff you can't see? The surveyor works for the buyer. I would mention your displeasure about that. I have a friend who bought a boat recently who hired a surveyor with a reputation for aggressively evaluating a boat and her system. The seller refused to allow the surveyor onboard. My friend didn't buy the boat. Guess what the seller was trying to hide? A major area of deterioration on the hull. Sheesh! Just my $.02 worth. Interview and get reviews of prospective surveyors.
