Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

Dude,

I think you're too obsessed with nit-picking my statement, and you've gotten off focus from my primary point.

If a seller has a boat that has been surveyed in the recent past, I would want to see the survey(s). Period. End of story. All your allegations about lousy surveyors don't matter to me. I want to see the survey(s). I'd be happy to hear the broker's argument of why the survey was wrong - I'm a reasonable person. I'd even look the boat over myself and might come to the conclusion that the surveyor was wrong. But don't pretend (or lie) that a survey wasn't done, and make me waste money to hire a surveyor who will tell me the same thing. I should be able to decide for myself whether the issue is worth a second opinion from a different surveyor. At the very least, I need to know who did the prior survey(s) so I don't hire the same surveyor the last guy did. That's not a second opinion at all.

A "fair and honest description of the vessel" should include that disclosure.
