There are ways to skin a cat. A multimeter at the breaker/fuse panel could give you a good idea if the anchor light--or any light--was turned on when you turned it on. But...

From your mention of a broker AND a listing broker, it is possible that the primary broker has a backup deposit or higher offer on the boat, and the secondary broker is afraid that if he doesn't complete the sale in time--he'll lose out entirely as the seller and the primary broker fall back and go on to the second offer.

Not that that should be your problem, but it could be that simple. Meanwhile, if the boat is right...that's what you're keeping.

I've thought about that but if that were the case I would have lost the boat by now. We're technically way beyond the acceptance date of the signed agreement and have no signed acceptance.

I think it will get worked out, its just frustrating. If my surveyor had been allowed to go up the mast, the deal would be closed by now.
