Some of the boat brokers up in this area require a non-refundable, but small deposit (usually less than $200), which is good faith money for the seller in case the buyer decides to back out of a deal for no valid reason. If the survey shows something the buyer and seller can not come to an agreement on, the deposit is generally refunded. It is primarily to keep the riff-raff out of the proces, and covers the costs of the sea trial and such. Basically, it is to weed out people who are just looking to get a day sail out by pretending to be interested in the boat.

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.
