A salesman, of boats, cars, fridges or whatever will accentuate the positive and not talk about the negatives unless it is brought up in the conversation. He or she will keep things positive. It is up to the prospective purchaser to ask about this item or that item and whether it works and/or is installed properly. If he or she is asked it is up to them to answer honestly as far as their knowledge extends. Of course the survey will find issues as it should. But there are negatives about every boat (or product), whether new or old.
