Congrats! For survey, make sure you pick the surveyor, not the seller/broker - that is a 100% non negotiable point. Regarding sea-trial, make sure it has water tanks full! and invite some friends aboard. Go to wide open throttle and then back off 10% to cruise - Volvos recommendations.

Are you having an engine survey? I always recommend that, Volvos are pricey.

Hey Glen, I am just outside Toronto but my 506 is on Lake Simcoe, about 1hr north of Toronto.
