Re: Survey?????? I've never had one

Given the boat is on a trailer, you might save significantly by taking the boat to the surveyor, saving his/her roundtrip travel time and expense. Early in my boatowning career I trailered a 20-footer to a surveyor and stipulated I only wanted him to assess the hull, deck, rudder, spars and standing rigging. I was savy enough to assess everything else (plumbing, electrics, trailer, sails, etc.). It was something like $150 for a 5 page report (10 years ago). It was worth the peace of mind that the decks weren't soggy and standing rigging was sound.
