Re: Working with sellers who refuse a pending survey contract
Right. But there is kinda a difference between a 54DS and a $25K plastic GOB. ......
I only used my recent experience to make a point about avoiding worthless surveys, not to suggest every boat would require the same level of diligence. Folks get worthless surveys, when they sign up for a worthless survey. Cheap and fast.
There are some who are competent enough to do their own survey to whatever standard they feel they require, but need a piece of paper for the insurance company. In that case, I understand fast and cheap. However, many complain that their surveyor missed things, therefore they missed it too, so they require a thorough survey and that comes at a price.
p.s. I think all the Eastern guys went to Bluenose in Newport. I've heard some interesting stories. I bought my boat out of town.
