Surveyor Referral ? - St. Martin

The NAMS/SAMS roster is thin or does not exist. A few names by google search
but wondered if anyone has had a positive experience on a pre-purchase survey
on either French or Dutch side.
Thanks in advance

David did mine and I would say that he nailed it for what it was. I purchased the boat where is/as is and there where some problems but he found the ones that would have made me pause. I didn't of course.

Thanks Very Much

Palarran:
Appreciate the response & review.
He was the only SAMS member listed for SXM which was a little surprising
given the boat/yacht traffic moving thru there.
Sounds like You were pleased with his work.
Did You attend survey? If so, was he instructive?

Thanks Again

I arrived late due to travel problems.

As I said, I was pleased but the survey was limited to finding major items which would prevent my purchase right then. In a different situation, I would have wanted many more systems checked and I'm sure there would have been a larger fee. Example, many of the pumps had seised up. He did find a problem with the standing rigging, etc. If you are really serious, I'll e-mail you the survey.
