Before getting a survey (or parting with your hard earned) take a very good look at the boat yourself.
Go through the boat from one end to another. Trust your gut instincts. Look for anything that is loose or out of place. Check the equipment
list against what is on the boat. Go through everthing. Be fussy.
Rember that this boat is going to be rolled, pitched, banged. Ropes are going to have tons of strain put on them. The engine
will vibrate. The steering
will try to twist the stern of the boat off, and vice versa. The anchor
will try to pull the cleat out of the bow. Check that the rigging
is of the correct tension.
Look for leaks!(They may only be droplets on a new boat).
Try to do ths without the dealer standing behind you.
This is the time to fix all the problems that must exist on an item that is built by hand in limited quantities.
And get your survey.
