This step in the acquisition process involved a whole team of professionals going over the boat with a fine tooth comb. A Surveyor is the marine equivalent of your home inspector. He looks over all things structural, all the systems, the rigging, the equipment etc, making sure everything works and documenting anything that doesn’t , so we know exactly what we are getting. Nothing goes un-checked, from the bottom of the keel
to the top of the mast
and everything in between. Sails and rigging
systems and safety equipment
and right down under the sole.

So far so good. Full report to follow….
