North Chesapeake Surveyor??

Good afternoon!

I'm considering purchasing a 35 foot, heavy displacement cruiser in Middle River MD and am looking for a thorough and reputable surveyor somewhere in the area of Middle River or Baltimore. Particularly one who is thorough in diesel engines (volvo) as I already am planning on replacing most of the standing rigging but am holding out that the engine is in ship-shape. Any suggestions?

Thank you very much.

it's been years... but if his name is Bobby? or Mark?.... be careful. PM me a name if you get one, I would remember if I heard it... he was a joke...

I would recommend Fred Wise in Georgetown, MD. If you are still looking for a surveyor I will send contact info.

Re: North Chesapeake Surveyor??

We used Bob Turner of Kelsey & Turner in Annapolis for our purchase of a 1983 Bristol 35.5. He completed both the "on-the-hard" and sea trial in a very professional manner (very thorough, roll up his sleaves and let's see what we're looking at.) His written report was excellent; he formulated a repair and maintenance program; and was available for a number of followup questions after purchase.
