Re: I'll start here ......

Dave,

Regarding surveys, in the US at least, the buyer pays for the survey. This could be a couple hundred dollars minimum. There is a general reluctance to allow someone else free access to what someone paid quite a bit to get.

The second issue is that you really want as current a survey as possible to reflect the current condition of the boat. Even one year of sailing can cause considerable damage or changes that were not reflected in a previous survey.

Once you've narrowed your choice down to THE boat that you feel that you want, then locate a surveyor and have him or her survey the boat. If you Google "Sailnet surveyor" there are other threads on the survey question.

I don't know if the process for finding a surveyor is different in Canada. One of our northern members can answer, I'm sure.

Best of luck!

Donna
