ive read here before that surveys have a disclaimer in them , therefore you cant recover any losses from something they missed.

I dont' feel you can't just put a disclaimer at the end of a report. (after you do a survey). If you need a disclamer you should give it to your client first. Have them sign it then the surveyor would be free and clear. But if a surveyor told me before a survey that there was no way they could detact a rotted trandom I wouldn't use Her.

I would guess that your only recourse with the boat survey would be similar to a house inspection .... .... .... a refund of the survey/inspection cost. Unfortunately, that is only a insignificant portion of the repair bill.

Hey Skramer,
So surveyors are not responsible for missing something that serious on a survey ? Are they state licensed ? Does the state require them to carry some sort of insurance or bond ? I would think they should have some responsibility otherwise like you said "Why get a survey ?"

I believe they do need to be licenced in the state of florida. I've been told to write letters to the Florida State licencing board, as well as NAMS. Which I will do soon. If anyone is looking for a surveyor in Florida I wouldn't recommend Recreational Marine Experts Group.(RMEG) Patricia Kearns.

Topdj That's what every surveyor should be required to use. Next time I'll make sure My surveyor has one. Thanks for the info.
