My offer was accepted the other day on a 43' 1978 Gulfstar
Mark II center cockpit ketch
rig. Planning to live aboard and sail for the next couple years here in NH and then head
for warmer climates!
I'm scrambling a bit to line up a surveyor
within the acceptance period. I obtained a survey
that was done 4 years ago by the previous seller. The current
owner never had the boat surveyed. The surveyor
that performed that survey
4 years ago is available in the time frame. He seems qualified and knowledgeable.
Does anyone think it would be beneficial to have this surveyor look at the boat again now 4 years later or do you think I would be better off with fresh eyes on the boat?
Long time reader, first time poster, and first time boat buyer.
excited and freaking out!
Thanks for the responses.
