I know of no ASA Marine appraisers who are not primarily surveyors. I do not know who the surveyor for this job is, so cannot comment on his qualifications to do the appraisal part.

What I did object to was the characterizations of surveyors as not qualified to do appraisals. Many are very qualified. Those that appraise do in fact also survey.

Fantastic. I wish you great joy with your new boat. I hope to see you in passing as we travel.

The best news? Our wedding plans are intact! David and I are getting married in May. We call each other hubby and wife but were not technically married yet.
We are getting married at a cute little restaurant on the river. Our plan is to have our boat docked at the wall and leave on it after the wedding for a honeymoon trip!

Picture below is where were getting married.

Wifey B: Omg. You've been living in sin? : popcorn: Why I was a virgin when I got married. Not. Would you believe? How about like in Madonna's song, "Like a Virgin?" Well, we did wait quite a while before we had sex? Would you believe months? weeks? days? Hours? Ok, minutes. I think the better part of an hour.

Happy for you both and I'm sure it will be a great wedding. I'm all for intimate weddings. We had friends in NC who everyone thought they were married until they sent wedding invitations. I laughed so hard at some people. Had they even paid attention when Richard introduced them. He never said "my wife".

I think the vows will mean so much more to you than they do to some because you really understand what life together is like now.

Honeymoon on the boat sounds so cool. :

Lets see...when we first met in 1996 I think we waited less than an hour. Haha
While David was flying to Florida the other day, I was with our jeweler picking out diamonds!!

I don't trust them assessors. They assessed a boat of mine at the same value I paid for it brand-new eight years earlier in a divorce settlement (lived with it)! Automobiles and boats depreciate while real estate can grow in value ten-fold within some years or so. Not so boats.
