people buying boats...

Since no one else commented, I will. I agree 100%. This board is a wonderful resource. I''ve owned 4 different boats and every time I look I get from some owner or broker "you don''t need a survey." This causes alarm bells to go off and I immediately head the other way. Im not sure how folks buy boats without a survey as every insuranance company I''ve deal with requires one to bind coverage. Problem with boat buying is that many go with their hearts and not with their heads; heartbreak (and a breaking of the bank) oftenn ensues. YOu must also find a good survetor; they are not all created equal and a bad one cost me ALOT of money on my current boat. Never, ever, ever accept a surveyor proposed by the owner or the broker unless you can independently confirm his objectivity.
