Diesel Engine Survey?

OK, I'm going out on a limb and investing a bit more than I should on the boat of my dreams.

My ceiling is 40K and I'm looking at a couple of C&C 30MKII's

My question is; Should I invest a bit more and, in addition to the primary survey, hire an expert to give the engine a complete inspection?

I had my first boat surveyed and they really didn't spend much time on the engine aside from warming it up, running it under a load for a short time and giving it a good look over.

If I buy the boat and the engine needs major work in the first year or two in will put a strain on my finances.

Thanks...
