Fritz...everything in a sale is a negotiation. That said, after an offer has been made and accepted, it is my view that only items which the buyer was aware of before the survey are NOT open to further negotiation. Anything that will be costly to repair and is not just normal wear and tear should be negotiated. Many sellers will have a "bottom line" that they will try not to dip below so you may not get everything you ask for and still wish to get the boat..but it never hurts to press and it is perfectly acceptable to do so.
