So as I get closer to buying I've been searching posts on surveys and surveyors, seems this Mike Dickson is a popular and well liked guy. I get all the mechanical, electrical and plumbing stuff but what can they do to determine the condition of the wood under glass? Do they x-ray the damned thing? Poke holes in it? I have had wood boats and I know how to look for soft spots and rot, but how do they inspect stringers and transoms on FG boats? Curious minds and all that. I'm going to call him up but wanted to be able to ask intelligent questions so I'm asking here first. Thanks !
