Of course unless the OP misrepresented things like the quad Merc guy did.

I put yes. both seemed to be difficult to deal with but when a guy puts a deposit and the boat has issues in survey you give the money back.

I agree with above. Carrabelle boat club is a very nice facility and the guys moving the boat around were very polite. Hopefully he gives them a few bucks

until the contract between the two parties is posted any attempt to provide a meaningful answer is just opinion and counts for nothing.

The buyer failed to protect his deposit by failing to specify what it was for, if it was to be refundable, and upon what conditions. Typically, the deposit would be refundable if the survey discloses repair issues which the seller either refuses to fix or offset with a price reduction.

Here, the seller allowed a sea trial and survey in good faith, expecting to receive a copy of the written survey report, upon which to consider his response to any issues raised by the surveyor. The buyer inexplicably failed and refused to provide the seller with a written copy of the survey report. Unsupported by the survey, with no specific reasons given, and without giving the seller a chance to fix the boat or reduce the price, the buyer walked away and demanded his money back.

The buyer failed to follow the normal and expected buyer's behavior, usually spelled out in the purchase contract. He did so at his peril, and the seller is justified in keeping the small deposit.

No survey report to seller no deposit back.

You can’t back out of a house or try to renegotiate the deal if you don’t present the seller with a copy of the report.

I've seen poll numbers similar to those somewhere around here!

I think the "Yes. Absolutely" refund the deposit group are Right!

This isn't a house, and if it was, there absolutely is a clause in the contracts, that during an inspection period the buyer can back out for any reason.

Iíd like to know what made the buyer a pain to deal with. Seemed he had ever intention to buy the boat. Clearly there was a problem with the survey. I had a similar experience with a boat I almost bought. Drove 8 hours to look at it. Thought it was perfect unfortunately it had some water intrusion that I didnít feel comfortable with. No hard feelings and I got my deposit back. The survey didnít even get far enough for a report and the seller and his broker understood my position.

Genuine curiosity. With boats is there a "pass" or "fail" point? Any surveys I have gotten have given me info on the boat, then it is up to me whether it passes or fails my terms. The terminology if that is what was used would likely screw the buyer. That said, if I am the seller, I know what he means when he says pass or fail.
