Re: Marine Surveyors
Maybe. What damage could they possibly do? I'm not giving them the key to the engine. I'm checking on the boat when they're done. I have 10% of the asking price from the buyer which I can not return if their surveyor has done something really crazy. The ones I have met, have all been boaters or boat owners at the very least.
Seriously, aside from bad advice, a bad report and screwing up an otherwise good deal, what could they possibly do to your boat?
Edit:. Oops, I think BP was typing at the same time as me. Even a hard grounding shouldn't result in a 10% devaluation of the vessel. Just keep the deposit. The buyers responsible for the actions of his surveyor.
