I crawled over a boat the other day and it looked immaculate.
The boats has good providence insofar as known history, maintenance log book and receipts for everything.
The owner is very very attentive.
I have recieved good feedback on the boat and as it is located a fair way fro me I am toying with the idea of no survey and no sea trials. I know what a boat of that model sails like and i know that this boat has just made a passage for 7-8 days.
Therefore I think the sea trial is redundant.
I am trying to figure out what a survey may turn up,
So i would argue survey first sea trial second.
