Yes, I flew to Miami for the survey. Ed was there at 8 am sharp, and started right away. The boat is a Morgan 382. He spent 1H30 going through it, then we motored to a boatyard where the boat got hauled out, and Ed inspected the hull and prop. I should mention that in the 1st hour he was nose down into all systems, but then he took me aside to show me stuff.
After the hauling, we went to the bay where he tested the engine at full speed and in between. He was definitely quite thorough. We then raised the sails, and played around for 1h, before to get back. While stopping at a marina to wait for a bridge to open, Ed went up the mast to check the rigging and spreaders.
Finally, while we were motoring back through the Miami River, he inspected a few more systems down under.
At the end of the day, we all sat together, Ed, myself and the previous owner, to go over the list of items he would include in the survey, and the list of items he was pointing to me only but woudn't include in the survey (minor maintenance issues). Basically, I didn't really need to wait for the survey report, as he had already gave me all issues.
Hope all goes well,
