Re: Working with sellers who refuse a pending survey contract
We did a survey the other day on a 1978' "classic". The fella had purchased it without a survey. Our survey revealed approximately $40k in immediately needed repairs before launching. He is devasted because he can't get insurance and repairs are about twice as much as he paid for the boat. Dock talk is he has now hired one of those "insurance surveyors" who never find anything wrong except for out of date fire extinguishers.
Ya pays yer money and takes yer chances
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
