The surveyor finally got a chance to do a walk-through today. He saw a few places where water had leaked in and damaged some ornamental wood, noted that some of the hoses (fresh water supply for sinks, etc.) would probably need to be replaced, said the wiring in the engine compartment needed to be cleaned up (a few places where wires weren't properly capped/soldered/etc.), and that there was some moisture in the deck near the chainplates, but no soft spots that he detected. He also said she has probably one of the biggest collection of junk in the cabin that he has ever seen, but otherwise she seems to be in good shape. So, I'll be scheduling a formal survey for a few weeks from now, and unless that turns up something really horrible (which is certainly a possibility), I think we're going to go forward with the Allmand.
