It was the best $300 we could have spent on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and a week later we were emailed a detailed 40-page document that we used as our starting point for our To Do list.
Ditto! I learned a tremendous amount from my surveyor.
The one thing that I would add to the sea trial that I only now understand is that this is the time to perform a detailed inspection of the sails. It is too easy to look up, note how beautiful they are, and move on. However; next time, I will inspect them much more closely. Sails are not the most expensive part of a boat but they are not the cheapest either.
