I did a glancing-over survey of it twice, which is why i lack so much info on it. Im going to set up a checklist and write everything down and take pictures sometime soon. How much does a survey generally cost? i've never had to deal with it before. Its likely that i wont be able to afford a survey. I am fairly confident in my own abilities to survey the boat to determine whether or not its a chunk of rot, or has impending major failure in the next 5 years. I've been living on a wooden ship for two years, and just got back from a yard period on her.
