Something less. I made a big deal out of the blisters and some of the other items the surveyor found (none of them deal killers) and worked the seller over pretty well. I bought the boat for considerably less than the value the surveyor placed on it in his report (he seller never saw that section of the report of course!) I never thought about deducting the price of a full peel, etc. because everyone involved in the deal knew that wasn't necessary. But it's all in what you're comfortable with.
