Arrange a time with the broker for him to show up with his cell phone and a video calling app (face time, whatapp, Skype).

Have him give you a live video tour of the boat and you can tell him to show you all the bulkheads and anything else you want to see. It's cheap and easy. If the broker refuses, assume there is a problem but a lot harder to hide stuff if you are directing the video.

Re: Buying a boat that's been grounded?

A real good idea is to see the repair bill that discribes what was done to repair. That will at least give you an idea how bad the damage was and how they fixed.

Re: Buying a boat that's been grounded?

Thanks so much for the continued input - I have sent an email off to the broker requesting before/after photo's, copy of insurance claim and repair bill.

Based on response will then find someone to do the video call for an "inspection" (Given that I wouldn't be able to identify anything but the most obvious damage!)

Really good idea's as to how to get a clearer idea before spending money on a surveyor. Thanks again.

Have some shots of the rudder and keel damage. But no response regarding the insurance claim or repair bill as yet.
