I'm giving myself ten days on the boat to get her ready to launch. I know the antifoul paint is in need of scraping back and according to the surveyor there are potentially two or three sea cocks that need to be repaired or replaced. I would have more information about the work required had my surveyor not had a run of extremely bad luck. It seems just after completing our survey he suffered an online hack resulting in him unable to access his computer, email and other accounts. Somebody then assigned themselves his power of attorney and to top things off he was registered as an in-patient at a mental health clinic! I was wondering why we'd not heard from him in ages, all sorts of scenarios ran through my head but truth turned out to be far stranger than fiction!
To this day we are still waiting for the survey report one month later. He was able to access it on his screen at one point and described over the phone the main issues. Luckily there turned out to be nothing more than the usual maintenance expected of a boat her age and we went ahead with the sale.
