Good Surveyor in Jacksonville, Florida ?

Hello,
I am in great need of a surveyor in the Jacksonville/ St. Augustine area. We are looking at a Westsail 32 in Deland, Florida ( 1975 Westsail Cutter Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com ) and need some help. We currently live in Denver and know very little about this individual boat, however, we plan to fly out there soon. The hull number is #228 for anyone who can scurry up some information about this boat. Although we want to live on a slow, beamy, apartment-style monohull, we don't want to have to deal with much osmosis or rot.


Thanks for your help!

-Patrick

I used Gary Frankovich earlier this summer to survey our Hunter 30. I was quite happy with him.

I've used Gary also, and found him knowledgable and thorough.

You've probably already made your decision, but thougth I'd add, I was very pleased with a survey I recently had done by Noel Miley in that area.

Re: Good Surveyor in Jacksonville, Florida?

Just look at 30 feet Bristol 1973. Kind of "crampy" inside. Need paint. I need a surveyor as this is my first boat. Do not even know how to tie a rope ( not mention the sailing).
It is cheap, but I am worry about the hull. Does any one know of what are the rates for that size boat.

If you are still looking, I have been really happy with Scott Watts out of St. Augustine.

Jim Campbell is very good also. <campbellmarine@clearwire.net> He surveyed our Hunter 37.5 when we bought it a couple of years ago, and he was very thorough.
