I've got a call in for the diesel mechanic at Port Superior -- where the boats spends the winter on the hard. I plan to have the engine and generator thoroughly tested by the mechanic.

Having said that, I'll ask the broker for maintenance records, if they exist.

Sounds like you've got your bases covered... so if you can't make it to the surveys of the boat and engine/genset, I think you'll be alright... However, it is probably better if you could attend.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You're right. Do you know the boat, or have a recommendation on a surveyor?

Here is the surveyor that has been recommended:

Tow, Incorporated, Marine Surveyors and Insurance adjusters in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Fritzn,

I have not had to have a boat survery yet since I have always bought small.

Do you know the name of the guy you are getting and I could float it around the yacht club in Duluth to see if anyone else has an opinion. Our commodore is the service manager of a largest local marina.

I can't promise anything but I would give it a shot.

Fritz....for what it is worth...I'd wanna be there too as I've always learned some things personally from a good survey and my presence serves to insure that every single thing is checked.
Nevertheless, there are times when owners can't be present and it sounds like you have done everything right to insure that you have no major surprises when you climb aboard her as your own. Good luck with her...they are boats with a beautiful line.

The guy who will actually do the survey is Dave Johnson. Anything that you can find out about him would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Fritz

Nice looking boat, a bit too pricey for me, but i have to agree with the rest. If your not present for the survey, it may haunt you in the back of your mind forever!

Surveyors have very difficult jobs and must balance many competing interests all the while trying to protect themselves from any possible legal trouble. A surveyor may be far more direct in person than he is in the written report.

I learned a lot from the surveys I've attended. Also seen people point out things the surveyor would have missed otherwise.

So my vote is be there.
