That is basically it. However, don't expect to have any major changes because of the price. On my first boat the survey didn't show anything major and the closing was a week later at the agreed on price. For my second boat the survey showed minor things (a few navigation lights didn't work, some rigging wasn't run right, etc.). I had the seller correct those problems before closing on the boat.
