Surveyors in the PNW

Looking for a good surveyor in the Everett, Bellingham, Blaine area, sooner the better.

Thanks in advance,

I have used a number of surveyors, and the best I have ever used is Matt Harris in Bellingham. Get into his schedule early, because he is used all over the US. Last I used him (last year) his rates were still reasonable.

Don Gardener is also a well regarded surveyor in Blaine.

Thanks for the tips

I'm going to go with a Mr. Berg, as Mr. Harris is very much in demand and the wait is too long. The boat we are surveying is owned by the surveyor, Mr. Gardner and it looks to be in very good shape. He has done a lot of upgrades and it is the cleanest boat we have seen.

Thumbs up Surveyor

Ah yes...I know the boat & you're right about using another person because of conflict of interest. I believe you will really find it's a great boat though. Good luck.
