Can you trust a survey??

Write a protocol for the surveyor and give him a clear understanding of what you expect. Tell him or her that you''re not looking for an inventory of equipment but are asking for their expertise to inspect the vessel for moisture, bulkheads properly tabbed to the hull, standing rigging inspection, rudder and steering inspection, chain plate inspection, plumbing and electrical inspection, seacock inspection, water pump inspection and a complete engine inspection. Most of the surveys I''ve seen are glorified equipment lists with a few personal comments at the end, which normally don''t mean beans. If your surveyor is not willing to provide this service drop him like a used condom and find another.
