Can anyone tell me the average price per foot a survey costs in the USA. I got 3 quotes for a boat I bought in Maine and they charge 18 ft. Our survey prices in Canada are 1/2 this price. I''m wondering why such a big difference.
I just paid $22 ft for a good surveyer in Annapolis. To some extent, you get what you pay for. About 3 yrs ago I paid $10 ft on another boat in another part of the country. Turned out it was a really crappy survey.
I just had this 1986 Pearson 303 surveyed in Maine. The surveyor found excessive moisture in the deck core as well as delamination. The estimate cost of repair is, 7-9 thousand dollars. Needless to say the deal fell through. The survey cost $605.50, money well spent!
