Bloody cheek.

 I received an email today from Joe at the dry dock, he wanted to know when we were going to pay him for the work he's done!

It seems our prospective purchaser told him we were paying for the survey and the blacking.

Nothing is ever straightforward is it, we've spoken to the broker who is going to try and sort it all out for us.

Good luck!

No, nothing is ever straightforward. Sending all good vibes for this. It should be easy to clear up, so fingers crossed.

Hope you don't have to pay. It will be good when the boat sale is done and you can look forward to your new place.

I'd imagine a survey on a boat follows the same rules as a house survey - the would-be purchaser pays for the survey. So I hope this is sorted in your favour. As for the blacking - who asked for it to be done? If it wasn't you, then you shouldn't be liable to pay for it.
It's not sufficient for Joe to take someone else's word that you would be paying - he should have checked with you before starting the job. (I hope your hubby wasn't involved in the arrangement . . . . ???)
