Re: What to expect from a survey

They generally do not inspect rigging above deck level OR the engine other than a visual external inspection. Both are expensive items.

My [ expensive ] surveyor missed a major oil leak on my boat. Mind you I KNEW it would be leaking there. It is a Perkins after all. The strategically placed babies nappy was a clue. Nor did he inspect the spinnaker, being content to leave it undisturbed in it's bag.
