Re: Working with sellers who refuse a pending survey contract

As a recent buyer I walked away from one boat that was (probably) good because the seller refused the "hassle" of a survey insisting that he had priced it as a steal, that it was in good shape, and it would go quickly - and it did. But for my own peace of mind I wanted a professional's opinion, particularly as it was my first 'big' boat purchase. The boat I did end up buying I got a somewhat generic report back from the surveyor and he had an entirely different opinion about the condition of the standing rig than riggers I later talked to but he was good in person, pointed out a number of items I wouldn't have known about and added value to the process. Was it perfect? No, but it was worthwhile in my opinion.
