Re: What to expect from a survey

I was able to get a "sanity check" inspection for $100. I had seen the boat and, while it needed a LOT of TLC, it appeared to otherwise be good structurally. The surveyor did the quick and dirty review to ensure I hadn't missed anything that should have sent me running from the boat. He is crediting me part of the $100 toward the full survey. I think it was money well spent before getting a formal, pre-purchase or insurance survey (or both).
