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

No you don't need either IMO. Insurance isnt expensive though and you can find places that will cover you without a survey.

I don't trust insurance companies to pay if something did go wrong so I vote no.

You do have to know what you are looking for when you shop for boats and only you know how well you think you'll do.

It seems to me that the boats that are shiny and nice and well taken care of are probably fine and the ones that look like they have been sitting for years are likely to have problems. So in a oat that been actively used an the owner is moving or upgrading.

It would be good to have someone who knows boats go with you.
