Interestng...

I recently bought a boat and both the broker and the surveyor said that they'd never do a sea trial without the owner on-board. Their rationale was that if something did break, the owner could say it was their fault and hold them responsible.

However, during the sea trial, the owner did in fact run the boat at wide open throttle at the surveyor's request.
