Recomendations for a Surveyor

I am considering a catamaran in a brokerage in Fort Lauderdale, and obviously will need to rely on a surveyor even more than normal. A forum member is very kindly having a look for me to see if it is worth my flying over to see her, and I will then need a very good survey to beat the price down !

Can anyone recommend a thorough and trustworthy surveyor in the Fort Lauderdale area who wont bankrupt me?

The best surveyr in town is Derryl Brizendine.
I have used him 5 or 6 times and always came out ahead.
He is also a nice guy.

1-954-524-8661, fax 1-954-524-6684.

If ya want, I can run over and look at that cat before ya start poring money into the project..
Don't know much about cats in genereal, but I cane tell if a boat has been abused, ignored or maintained well.

Cool, but if ya need more eyes to look at the boat, I live in between most of the marinas and are only 5 minuttes away from half the boats in town.

No charge, except for a glass of beer when ya come to pick up the new cat...
