I've only paid for a survey based on a quote, which in turn is based on LOA. I did pay by the hour once, but it was capped at that quote based on LOA. I stopped the survey about mid way, rejected the boat and saved money.

On another point made, that seller did ask for the partial survey. I did not provide it. They could have bought it from me, however. The boat was not as represented in many way, which is why I rejected it.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
