people buying boats...

I found the toughest surveyor we could and saved about $6k in the transaction as a result of pre-sale items he found (most tied to a need to pull the mast and replace electrical). The other poster''s suggestion to follow the surveyor "like a puppy" also worked well and generated a similar discussion and list of to-do items.

Found our surveyor by asking a couple of smaller chandleries and two boat yard owners, and local anal-retentive owners in different harbors (S. CA area). Same two names came up across the board. The one I didn''t use ended up doing a survery in the yard on the boat next to us. Bottom line, I was impressed by both. Thought the boat yard had the most concise feedback on the surveyors.
