I'm not anxious, I'd rather wait for the right boat. We finally found one that my husband was interested enough in to get a survey and sea trial, but decided to pass on. In the mean time, we've been having lots of fun on OPB's. The right boat will come along, you just have to be patient.
As to finding a good surveyor, the good peeps here had some excellent advice which helped us find our surveyor. We will be using him on any other boats we think we are really, really interested in.
