Annapolis Surveyor recommendations

We are new to sailing and have been reading and following this forum for the last couple of years, this is first post as a member. It is amazing to us the amount of knowledge and good ideas coming from this forum.

After much study we finally have a boat under contract. The boat is a Island Packet 370. She is located in Annapolis. We are looking for Surveyor recommendations in the Annapolis area.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Bob

Derek Rhymes does an excellent job. I used hime twice and the buyer of my first boat also used him and was also impressed.

Thanks for the info. Not sure if the timing will work with Derek. Does any one else have ideas?

Re: Annapolis Surveyor recommendations

Hartoft has been around a long time as has Uhtoff mentioned above. Also Fred Hecklinger is probably the "dean" of surveyors and he is very detailed and thorough. Also Bob Turner and Rob Noyce are highly experienced. I've met or known or have used them at one time or another. Check with your broker. For a very reasonable fee I can give you a verbal general evaluation of the overall condition and whether there are any "major deal killers" or any "red flags". I've done this for many clients and it can save them lots of money and headache. Though not certified as a surveyor, my decades of experience in most aspects of recreational boating provide me with the overall knowledge and ability to provide such a service which will cost substantially less than a surveyor. While I highly recommend a full survey before proceeding to purchase, keep in mind that on every boat I have come aboard that had a survey--something was overlooked--sometimes major flaws. Island Packets in general are exceptionally well built but they can be difficult to thoroughly inspect because of lack of access to key areas. A surveyor may not tell you if it is the right boat for you. They generally do only a cursory inspection of engine, sails and rigging. You can lean more at FOERFRONT dot COM Thanks!!!

Susan Canfield I've heard is good.

Re: Annapolis Surveyor recommendations

I would like to thank everyone for the input. Its a good thing there are several well thought of surveyors in Annapolis because a few of them are still tied up working on hurricane Sandy claims.

Just used him for a survey. Very happy. In addition to a thorough survey, he took the time to explain what he found and what mattered. Also, he arrived at 9:25 for a 9:30 meeting and delivered the report on the day it was promised.
