This would be my approach. Tell the surveyor about your concerns. Tell him to check that first. Tell him that if it is serious that will be the end of the survey.

Of course, it was not the autopilot that was bad. The autopilot did exactly what an autopilot is supposed to do. It was the idiot boaters, who grossly misused their autopilot, who were "bad."
