I thought that the objective with an insurance survey was not too thorough and willing to value the boat on the high side! This is in contrastwith a buyers survey where you want someone extremely picky and making a big deal of every flaw and repair needed.
Of course a real surveyor like our CP being a highly ethical professional would never succumb to the blandishments of buyers and sellers... operating instead under the "bite me...I tell it like it is" business plan.
The objective then is to hire a surveyor unlike CP!!

Make sure you ask if the surveyor will go aloft. Surprisingly, many don't.
