Would you still get a survey?
Congratulations on your new boat, JK.
I try to shy away from offering opinions, but in this case...
Having participated in new boat shake-down cruises in the past, I would answer "absolutely" to your question regarding a survey.
In addition, I would be surprised if your insurance
company didn't require one anyway.
I suspect a survey will be the least of your commissioning expenses, and with the right surveyor
, well worth it.
I would also be surprised if your final acceptance isn't predicated upon [among other things...] your approval of a satisfactory survey.
