Re: Looking at a boat tomorrow
But you do have to ask yourself what can you afford to lose? In addition to that if you do end up buying a real pig-in-a-poke you can end up with a disposal bill that may well be as much again.
I wouldn't survey a 3-4K boat for myself but I've been at this for over 30 years.. I think a survey for a 'newbie' is worth the education value alone.
