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

Insurance on a boat worth less than 10K is dirt cheap, and worth every penny from a liability point of view. Surveys? Again, on a less than 10K boat, what are they really going to tell you? Both of my boat purchases, which were in this category, included a mask and a dip. Relying on someone else to tell you what the bottom looks like, and paying them to do it, when you can dive in and look for yourself, never made much sense to me.
