I am considering purchasing a new boat (Bene 31) from dealer stock. One complication is, the boat is already commissioned in the water (fresh water). That's great for getting a test sail, but it complicates inspection of the hull, keel, propellor, etc.

Would you insist on a haul-out prior to closing the deal? If so, should that be at my expense or the dealer's

The boat is under warranty, but the full-coverage part only lasts a year, so it's possible that something could go undiscovered until the next time I have reason to haul it out. Since it's got new bottom paint, that might be more than a year. I guess I can make a point to do an annual haul-out a little on the early side.
