Re: Buying A Boat, Need Some Help

Two approaches I've heard of for reducing the cost of a survey:
(1) learning enough to "pre-survey" boats on your own and eliminate clunkers so you only pay for a survey on a boat that in which you have high confidence;
(2) asking whether the surveyor might consider stopping the survey and reducing the fee if a big deal-breaker surfaces very early during the survey.
