Re: What's normal practice with a boat purchase?

Hello Sailors
When I bought my last boat 2 years ago on the day of the sea trial the surveyor , broker, and myself motored to the haul out, surveyor(having done all he could do in the water) completed his exterior inspection and then we went on sea trial. During haulout the question came up of the pressure wash, ($250) additional cost. After thinking of where we were in the selling process, ( I knew I was buying this boat) . I thought this would be a later negotiating point in my favor as now that the old bottom paint had been blasted the barnacles would be swift to infect sitting at the dock waiting for a suitor. It all worked out

Agree the cost of any work to be done beforehand but I suggest anodes and antifoul could be by owner then added to purchase price. I.e. all costs at that time paid by owner but those that benefit the purchaser are ultimately part of his cost
I too am in Sydney and when I purchased the then owner paid for the haul and wash, I paid survey.
