If you don't have and idea how the boat sails the sea trial is not the correct way to find out

The further you get into the deal the more difficult it is to back out without losing money UNLESS there is a true deficiency in the boat that shows up in the survey OR the sea trial which is at least around here the final part of the deal

For example on Long island i payed 300 just for and insurance survey in my driveway BUT you cant get real marine insurance without a survey from someone accredited with SAMS or its equivalent as a big part of the deal is them putting a value on the boat that can be justified

You surely don't want to be paying for several surveys as a way of weeding out boats

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
