Here's an idea that might save you a few dollars, at least it saved me. When I bought my Cat 36 I went through the boat thoroughly to make sure I was happy with everything. Then I arranged the survey which happened in 2 parts. First he went through everything while in the water and when that checked out OK I arranged the hauling. I had the deal ready to seal based upon the other inspections, so when the hull, keel, etc checked out OK, I immediately signed the deal and had the yard do some preventive maintenance (serviced the thru-hulls, fixed a few blisters, etc). It only cost me a day of yard time and I got to take advantage of the haul/launch that I had to pay for anyway. It felt good knowing that I wouldn't have to haul it again for a while.
