*The short answer is to stay alive, physically and financially. The open water can be a treacherous
place, subject to the whims of weather and lady luck. And, as the old saying goes, a bad boat is a hole in
the water that you pour money into.
*The longer answer is certain types and makes of boats have recurring problems or requirements. A
good surveyor will be familiar with most models and be able to advise you on the long term suitability of
your intended purchase and its equipment, particularly in relation to how and where you will be using it.
*In addition, it is unlikely you will be able to secure insurance or financing without providing the
insurance company or lender with an acceptable survey..... So you might as well make the survey a
condition of purchase to begin with.
