The surveyor felt that to boat was a "good little boat" and felt that I could do the work myself. Didn't seem to daunted by the damage.

There's an article in Good Old Boat, recent issue, on changing chainplates, not a job to put off, for sure not to leave the dock with undone.

Myself I'd be removing a big chunk of the material around it, make sure its thoroughly dried out, and re-epoxy whatever super thick after its fixed/replaced checked out. The teak might be good, might not, nows the time to check. Ifnot replace with some white oak.

I agree with Paul, the surveyor should have explained it more, but if he said its a good boat cut some slack until you find out otherwise. This is another excellent example of why the buyer needs to be by the surveyor taking notes with a surveyors golden words . Agree beforehand for him to take the time to explain, its the best money spent. If they dont want to give explanations find another. But, dont expect them to do the explaining without extra payment, thats not fair either. They bill for their time and work, extra is worth extra.

This is where a much clearer explaination from the surveyor would be a good thing.

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.

I agree with you guys. To be honest the surveyer didn't really point out anything I (or the broker) didn't already see. I guess I should have been up his ass a little more but I figured that's what I was paying $500 for.

Honestly, It was my opinion that a Survey on a $7500 boat was a waste of money but my co-owner insisted.
