Hum.. I should be the exception.. I bought all my boats with a handshake with the owner, a small amount of money over the table and a coffee...
No broker, no long, extensive survey, just "tell me boat's history" over a nice dinner or bbq.. I perform my own inspection, a short sea trial if I feel compelled to buy it and that's it...
Maybe I so naive but always trust owner word.
Maybe I was lucky...
I got boats from all around the world, moved, selled it in the same way..

Better luck next time Darrel.
The $550 spent on a surveyor saved you a big headache. And the whole process leaves you better equipped to deal with the next boat you'll be looking at.

Some of the best deals of your life are the ones you don't make.
