Surveyor vs. Surveyor Associate
Thinking about buying a Ranger 23' that just got posted on Craigslist. The problem is, it's in Lake Mead and the closest Surveyor I can find (using both namsurveyors.com and marinesurvey.com) is an Associate based in Las Vegas. For insurance/own peace of mind purposes, is an Associate suitable? Is it even worth paying for a survey as the boat's $1500 (I haven't been in touch with the SA yet to get a quote). I just sent the seller an email asking a few questions, so I haven't seen it yet, should I take a look before even talking to the SA? Cheers.
