Kemah Surveyor

Can anyone recommend a good surveyor in the Kemah, TX area? I'm looking to buy a boat down there and am looking for a good surveyor.

Thanks!

Re: Kemah Surveyor

Mike Firestone if you can get him. Considered one of the best in the business. He is not cheap. Phone361) 749-7767

Re: Kemah Surveyor

I used Paul Fannin. My broker was scared as he never sold a boat that Paul surveyed (until me). He may make some things sound scary but I think it s a good thing. Let you really think about what you are doing.

Re: Kemah Surveyor

Make sure that you choose someone that will climb the mast. We used Roy but he still missed a few things. They are only on it for a day. And do it after a good rain to find some of the leaks. If you use the boat, there is always a leak even after we fix it, a year later it leaks again.

Re: Kemah Surveyor

Another vote for Mike Firestone. Best there is. And yes, he goes up the mast.

Re: Kemah Surveyor

Thanks everyone! I've contacted Drake Epple. He said he knows Westsails very well and seems like a good guy all around.
