BVI surveyor for 48ft Trawler

Hi all,
Does anybody have personal experience with a good surveyor in the BVI's.
Would prefer a motor oriented person, she is over 15years old with twin inboards,
we would haul her for a hull and prop/ shaft rudder etc inspection, moisture reading / ultrasonic , visual osmosis blisters ect ect.

I have 30years of owning motor cruisers so know most failings with systems I have re-engined and grafted transom for Kad32 DPE power unit and drive on my first boat, so not a total novice but have never owned shaft driven vessel, so not shore how best to check for alignment and any common faults. Also never owned with aircon

It's a Trader so any past / present owners advice would be great ( pm if you prefer)
Many thanks Paul

You may also ask your 'future' insurance company to give you a list of ACCEPTED surveyors, so you do not do this twice....

Best of luck
