Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?
I'm not obsessed with your statement. I just was pointing out that you don't know what a surveyor really is. He's just a guy, he's not a licensed professional of some kind.
Now, one your larger point of wanting to see any surveys that might have been done in the last few years, and whether a broker or seller is entitled to lie? By law, that kind of lie would be called "fraud" and if that state had a "duty to inform" regarding material defects, the lie could be actionable. But since there's little to no chance you'd ever know about it, and horse traders have been known to lie...Good luck with that. I don't think you know the playing field. The broker is a pro, he's not your friend and he's going to keep his moth shut and say "I don't know" about anything that might hurt his sale, unless it can be proven that he does know.
With rare exception.
