 Boatless in Victoria

"Our marine surveyor had by this time worked his way from the forepeak to about mid-boat, and seeing we were alone, asked bluntly whether I was looking for a "project boat" to occupy my handyman skills - and bank account - for the next several years. He took me through his already long list of concerns, suggested I pay him for half a survey, and that we both go home. Since the broker and the owner were sitting on the flybridge, I took the broker for a walk, told him I would still buy the boat if the vendor either undertook to make the necessary repairs or reduced the price sufficiently to permit me to do so. The vendor said he couldn't, and I took the surveyor up on his offer."
