I'd say if you talk to your insurance company and they're OK with insuring a boat that was once struck by lightning (and get them to put in writing that they know this, and they will not exclude any damage that is discovered later due to the strike), then buy it! If it has pinholes or something that the survey missed, the insurance will pay to have it fixed. But more than likely, it will be uninsurable... do you want to have an uninsured boat?
