Recommend Surveyor in Grenada Please

Hi All,

Can anyone help me find a surveyor in Grenada that can do a good job on a 2012 Lipari?

I need someone pretty quick.

Thank you,

Close friends on a buddy boat bought thier boat here earlier this year (in Feb). They used Neil @ Mango. I have no personal experience with him, but they speak very highly of his services.

Here is a link to his website.

Bob Goodchild at Flyingfish Ventures | Caribbean Marine Surveying is excellent. Been in Grenada for a long time but people get him to fly all over the Caribbean such is his reputation. I used him a couple of times just for insurance renewal purposes but I also know someone who used him when their boat was close to a total write-off and he did a great job.

Re: Recommend Surveyor in Grenada Please

I think both of these guys a are fine. The problem could be availability. They often seem unavailable.

Yup.. I sent you a response on my wall posts.. In case you don't get it, we are anchored in Prickly Bay. We are right between both dinghy docks.

Either Mt. Hartman or the Prickly Tiki bar would work for a beer. We monitor VHF68.. Our boat is Party of Five!

Re: Recommend Surveyor in Grenada Please

I just want to update you all on my experience.

I hired Neil Batchelor (Mango Projects) and not only did he fit us in under a tight timeline for the sale but he also turned the survey report around in 1 day. It usually takes 3 days to get a survey report.

Neil does an incredibly comprehensive survey. He has an excellent reputation and deserves it.

Thanks everyone for your help!

Kat
