Whatever company you choose, make sure to ask if they require a survey before you launch. Bummer to have to slip the boat just after launching it.

Don't ask me how I know.....

I was lucky enough to live close to the designer, and he vouched that he had personally overseen the build process, so my insurer was willing to accept an in water survey.
