Re: Benataeu grid construction
Sounds like you are trying to convince yourself that it would be OK to buy this boat. There are lots of boats out there. I doubt that this is a specific Bene issue. While people can chime in on your pictures, none of use are actually there as your surveyor was. That's what he gets paid to do, I would go with what he said as he was on the boat. Keep looking, you will find the boat that works best for you.
I think to me it's more about doing research and learning so I'm a better informed buyer in the future. Also, I'm skeptical of everything
I've had plenty of experts give me bad information. Not that I suspect the surveyor did... This is more of a follow-up and curiosity...
You're right about the photos. But pictures are better than nothing. And I'm hoping someone here looks at them and say...
"Oh - yes, I've seen this pattern before. These are the common structural weak points on a Benataeu grid."
"Well, that area doesn't make any sense.. hull separation happens here and here and not over there."
