Need ''''survey on the hard'''' advice

I''m seriously considering a boat that is currently in NY state which I''ll truck to Florida. I''d like to make purchase in the next couple months. I will get a surveyor, but I''m a little concerned because it will not be possible to conduct a sea trial. Seller has suggested an escrow on engine until boat is launched. That''s great, but what about all the other issues that may not be evident without a sea trial? Is it common for surveys to be done on the hard only? I''ve had some brokers tell me that surveyor sea trials occur, but most surveys don''t include them.
Any suggestions?
