Re: Buying A Boat, Need Some Help

Surveyor's also typically charge by the foot. So that is how you can figure out what it will cost. IIRC $10 US a foot would be a good budget. Some may also have a minimum, so if you hire some one to look at an 8' pram, they might have 2-4 hrs going to and from the boat, so some cost needs to be taken in for that.

The foot price is probably a good thumb up, armlength away guess on a price. It could vary some depending upon what you need etc.
