Surveyor in San Diego

Does anyone have recommendations for a surveyor in San Diego? I'm closing in on a price for a cruiser. Blue water experience would be a plus.

-Tom

We just had a survey done by Kells Christian. http://www.themarinesurveyors.com/ He was very through, knowledgeable, and very good at answering questions. I would highly recommend him.

We had ours done by Earl Stell. He came along for the sea-trial meaning that we needed less time for the haul out and he had a chance to test some systems underway.

Haul out was at "The Marine Group" Chula Vista and they were friendly and professional including a hose down of the hull being thrown in.

Kells did ours as well. Same deal: highly recommended. If you need a good broker for anything (he was formerly a rigger), lookup Joe Thomas at H&S Yachts.

San Diego Surveyor

I would also recommend Christian and Company for your survey in San Diego. We have used them on several occasions for new boat, rigging and valuation surveys. They are professional, knowledgeable and thorough. They also belong to the two accreditation associations (S.A.M.S. and N.A.M.S) recognized by insurance carriers. Pete
