Insurance Survey

I am nearing the end of a long refit of my Allied Luders 33 and will have to have a survey to get insurance when I launch and go to a marina.
Can anyone provide hints on how to approach this?

Are these types of survey different from others such as a pre-purchase survey? If he finds anything irregular - can I fix it before he issues the final report? Iíll sure be asking the surveyor these questions, but I just want to probe the opinions here.

Having gone thru every inch of the boat, it is unlikely the surveyor will find anything I didnít find and corrected. However, forewarned is forearmed, given the cost of this process I need to prepare and ensure nothing is left undone.

When going thru my own pre-survey checklist, is there anything in particular I should really pay attention to?
I have the names of all surveyors in the Toronto area, but if anyone can recommend one for this type of survey I'll be thankful.

Your help is much appreciated.
