The boat is sound. I'm going for it.

BTW all of you who posted negatively about the surveyor and how i should be able to folow him around and pester him and look over his shoulder- Eat crow. The surveyor was top notch. I met him, shook his hand and let him go to work. He crawled over, under, inside , outside, and everywhere through that boat for 8 hours . He stopped several times to chat about a few things here and there. He let me ask questions at this time. He quickly knew where I needed education and where I didnt. He elaborated on areas I was not strong on. I let him do his work without bothering him. He performed. The survey was spectacular and extremely detailed. The guy knew what he was doing, he did it well , and he did a better job of it than he would have if he had to nanny a prospective owner around through the boat asking dumb questions.

Most of the time, you guys in the forum get it right but other times... not so much.

I would use him again in a heartbeat. The guy is a walking marine encyclopedia.

Thanks Jukesy, she's a good one. She's just been lacking use and maintenance over the last couple of years. I'll be busy fixing her up this season. Mostly little stuff so we can still leave the dock though!

Good on ya bligh, to have found your boat! I don't mind eating crow when stating caution; when things turn out other then what I cautioned about. I'd still say the same items from what you previously revealed about the surveyor. Pleased he turned out well for you.

What's his cost per boat foot; or maybe another way he charges? Next time I haul out I plan to get survey.
