I think we all know that surveys are not any guarantee that all defects will be identified not that the sea trail would point out any latent problems either. I guess I'd put it another way - Don't give up the position you are in as the potential buyer the seller doesn't want to lose - one way to stay in control of the negotiation is to offer a refundable deposit pending sea trial WITH the stipulation the buyer can continue to market the boat.
