Mine did, and my "general" surveyor was a rare one who does engines as well, it got a bit competitive out there.
Good practice to have both, lot of $ in engines,genset etc. My mechanic was at the haul out too, he checked the running gear, skin fittings, the metal side of things. Some things crossover between hull and mechanical.
