Is a survey a legal document

Reason I ask this question is I have recently had a survey done that ended up with gross negligence. We could not be present during a survey and had paid extra when we thought we had hired one of the best in the field. After getting the boat delivered, we found holes in the bottom of the keel showing that the boat had been aground. He mentions nothing of this in his report but now is stating that he told us this over the phone (which he did not, buy a boat with a hole in the bottom). Question, do we have legal recourse with this?
