Oh no worries. I didn't think you were referring to me. I have a project boat that I can make my own. Of course if I had an extra hundred grand lying around I think I would have purchased one with no SO many projects!

Does anyone ever get a perfectly clean survey?

I adjusted the price accordingly and went back and forth with the seller until I was satisfied with the purchase price. Much to my liking, a lot of the issues the surveyor addressed have been easy fixes. Some, well not so much, but they will get done.

I did not let the boat go because of maintenance issues. I just adjusted the price according to cost of the items.

I am very pleased with my purchase as I work on her. Some may think she is a POS, but none the less I am proud of her and the work I put forth making her a beauty.

You will find your "bucket list" boat. Vessels come on the market all the time, but if you don't new build, expect something on the survey.
Hi Donna, I have to bug you about something...you said here twice that "I adjusted the price". Actually the seller did that for you.,LOL!
