Re: Seattle: Maintenance Consultants?
If you did not get a survey before purchase then perhaps a survey is in order. A good surveyor will go over what needs to be done, and the best way to do it. In the summery they will list safety violations and then go on to list recommendations for maintenance issues. Best thing is that most do not do any work themselves so they can be impartial. They should give recommendations that will bring your boat up to current ABYC standards. If you did get a survey you should already have a document that has the basics, but you should be able to contact them if you have further questions. All the items you list are standard survey items and all of them would fall under the category of "comfort" except for the propane. I think you first concern should be hull, rigging (standing and running), mechanical and electrical. Once those are set then you can concentrate on comfort. Remember safety first!
Agreed, you need to post some photos. And if you post specific questions on this and other forums you will get a variety of answers, some good others not but you will get your moneys worth!(free)
