Be careful with surveys. You have good ones like Coz and you have bad ones, but from a legal perspective 99% of all surveys call for visual inspection and the surveyor takes no liability their contracts.

Bottom line is get a surveyor from a referal (then go into detail about what you want) AND get a basic engine survey!!!! At least check compression, do a visual inspection and drop some lower unit lube. I usually charge 1-2 hrs per engine and drive and I can tell you of at least 2 deals that went south for the right reasons last year.
