you forgot the third reason for not getting a survey - I'm just as if not more capable of determing the condition of a vessel and have my own interests at the forefront without any conflict of interest or hidden agenda or concern of upsetting possible future "work " by being truthful.
and in the end yes,it is still my money.
I'm not a surveyor- just someone who can see the value, based on his own experience. YMMV.
