Re: What to expect from a survey

My surveyor was very accommodating. He came to the boat twice. The boat was out of the water when we contracted to buy it, so he came by to do his out of the water surveying and came back a month later when the boat was in the water to finish and conduct the sea trial.

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).
