I surmise you are in South Florida
? I just bought a boat that had a lightning incident years ago, and the survey showed it to be in excellent condition. Ended up close to full price
, and am OK with it in this instance.
Lightning can be fatal or just mean you get all new electronics on your purchase
; there is no "usual", you get what you inspect, in your situation.
I'd recommend Jon Sands of Atlantic Marine
Group. Background in marine
architecture and engineering, and he did a thorough and complete job. If he knows of the incident before the survey, he'll take a look at the hull and the wiring
for any delam/other damage, or electrical
damage. Getting a list of what was done to repair, and by whom, is an excellent idea.
