This is what I was alluding to as "double dipping"....

"YOU" are the primary value assor in the looked the boat over and you made the offer...

If accepted that should be the selling price....

The survey (and the home inspector) are just there to cover all the bases and make sure there were no hidden or undiscovered , major, defeciencies which may affect the value of said item...

If found, that would negate the deal, period...

And then it's time to start a "new" offer on what is now known...seller may want to correct to original offer specs, or take repairs in account when "you" make new offer...

But that is major hidden/unknown issues (deal breakers) not the mundane and obvious and easily recognizeable issues (which were taken into account in the "first" offer....
