When buying a used boat from a dealer is it necessary to hire a Marine Surveyor and Mechanic?
We'll be purchasing a used boat and need to know if a Marine survey and mechanic should be hired to look at the boat, or is that considered an insult to the dealer? Thanks! Also is a sea trial necessary when purchasing from a dealer? Obviously purchasing from a private seller is different, however we just don't want to insult the dealer if it's not common to ask for sea trials, mechanic reviews and marine surveys. Thanks!
Question answered by Capt. John
If you honestly think you are the very first "smart, educated, and intelligent person" to ever buy a boat from that dealer... You better RUN (not walk) away from that deal and the dealer.
I don't care if the Dealer is your brother, or your mother... being smart is always intelligent... being dumb is always stupid.
Is it "necessary"? Yes! Is it law? No! but it should be.
Is is "smart"... Absolutely! And depending on the price, size, and intended use of the boat - It could be the very smartest (or dumbest) financial decision you ever made. The bigger the financial sacrifice on your part, the bigger the loan... the smarter and more important it.
Just what are you going to do, if you take that boat out after you buy it, and discover - you need more money to fix it then you paid to buy it? Do you think for one minute, your loan payments will stop?
There are two "absolute musts" to buying a used boat of either substanial size or substantial cost to you...
One is the sea trial - the other is the Marine Survey and the absolute best of both worlds is to schedule your survey and the sea trial together... This way, the surveyor can ride along with you.
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE DEALER!
A sea trial (and survey in my opinion) is probably more important and necessary when buying from a dealer, then from buying from an owner direct. I can almost guarantee you - that if you buy the boat without a sea trial - the Dealer's owner, salesman, manager, finance officer, and mechanics - will gather around when you leave - and talk about what an idiot you were for not demanding one.
How do I know this? Like Garth Brooks - I have friends in low places. Some, (although I forgive them) are boat brokers and salesmen. For sure, I guarantee you that they would never ever buy a boat and not demand a sea trial (and depending on the size and cost - a survey.)
Now... let me close with this true story. I once recommended a friend on mine buy a particular boat. The boat was an absolutely beautiful 50 foot steel hull Chris Craft Roamer. The vessel was also in the slip next to mine... and had been for ten years. Every day... almost without fail... rain or shine - the retired Navy Admiral that owned that vessel - would be on it - and always working on it with meticulous tender loving care. Though the hull was steel - from the deck up - it was beautiful teak and mahogany, and the Admiral kept ever inch of that vessel in absolute perfect (looked brand new off the showroom floor) condition.
Finally, the Admiral realized he was just too old to take care of her, and put the vessel up for sale. My friend put down a deposit contingent on "his" satisfaction with the results of a Certified Marine Survey. (And at 50' the cost was no small potatoes, and one he had to bare).
To every ones absolute shock, (and I do mean every ones - from the Marina, the mechanics, the Admiral, me, and everyone else familiar with the Admiral and his boat - the survey revealed a soft spot in the starboard bow (steel had rusted)... How bad was it" my friend ask the Surveyor... "Well, " he said, "It's about the size of a basket ball, and bad enough I think I can put my fist through it."
So with a dozen or more of us that just couldn't believe it... the surveryor went out and - starting with the pressure of his bare thumb, pushed out a whole that was indeed just a bit larger then a basket ball.
Now... it didn't stop the deal. My friend and the Admiral came to terms and my friend bought the boat. Course, the first thing he did was have the hull repaired...
The point here is this... Everyone involved were honest men of integrity - and very experienced boaters.
No way would the Admiral have been using his boat, if under that beautiful paint, he had any idea his hull was dissolving away.
In either case, the Admiral or my friend, one good hard turn to port in rough seas - would have quickly flooded and sank the boat. In this case, I am convinced that - that survey saved at least one life - either my friends, or the Admirals.

Where can I get trained to be an Qualified Marine Surveyor?
I want to inspect boats for people shopping for used boats. Is there a schools for this in the L.A. area?
Question answered by mainsailorus
do a search for S.A.M.S (society of marine surveyors) or N.A.M.S. (national association of marine surveyors) - these are 2 organizations that teach classes on various types of marine survey work. You can also find a local surveyor and see if he will hire/train you.
What are the other soldier positions besides the marines?
Like I know of the navy,coastguard and the marines but i was just wondering what other like positions there were! Anyways thanks to who ever answers this!!!
Question answered by Michael
The "positions" you're referring to are actually the branches of the United States Military. The Marine Corps is one of such branches. The others are the Navy, Army, Air-Force, and Coast Guard.
In general those in the Marine Corps are known as Marines, in the Army they can be referred to as Soldiers, Navy has Sailors, Air force has Airmen, and Coastguard has Coastguardsmen. However these terms are not necessarily exclusive or necessary to describe someone in each respective branch.
Inside each branch of the Military there are also specific jobs, referred to as MOS in the Army and Marine Corps (Military Occupation Specialty) [pronunciation is M-O-S]. In the Air Force, the same principle is used in what is called the Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC), and the Navy they use the Naval Enlisted Classification (NEC) along with ratings and other such things. The MOS is where you get into specific jobs of Soldiers such as Infantryman, Field Artillery Surveyor, Avionic Mechanic, etc.

Is color sanding needed when painting a fiberglass boat with marine paint?
After painting, is wet sanding needed?
Also, is buffing needed?
Question answered by mohara_geminidawn
My first bit of advice is not to paint it. Fiberglass boats seriously de-value when painted as the potential buyer or surveyor can't see what the paint might be hiding, a good polish may be all that is needed to buff out all the chalk that has migrated to the surface. But if it is an old boat and there is no other way around it then yes, a good sand with a P80-P120 grit sandpaper followed by an acetone wash, finish with a two part polyeurothane primer and top-coat, single pack paints are a definite no-no as they will make the boat look worse before the season is out which will give you twice the work for a poor result.
