Re: 10K$ boat --- Are Insurance and Survey REALLY mandatory?

I didn't get a survey when I bought my boat. I saw there was some work that needed to be done and didn't worry too much about buying it without one.

But,

Once I started looking for a marina, most (if not all) require insurance on hand. Called BoatUS and they required a survey so then I got one. Once the boat is back on its trailer, I'll adjust the insurance to show it's not on the water, do some refit, then get a new survey to show its updated state.
