Yeah, some brokers are scared of him.
1) I hope the owner found out about it,
2) I hope someone filed a complaint about the broker,
3) I've heard this before about Mike.
I have to tell you, Mike was one of the reasons we bought our boat, in spite of the problems he found. He WILL find problems, and maybe scare the heck out of you. BUT, he will also assure you that no boat is without problems, AND he'll talk to you about them. Mike's a real pro, and broker that says "no" is a broker to avoid AND is unethical.
BTW, the survey is YOUR property. I won't share one with the seller or any broker.
