I pretty much thought it might be necessary to source someone from another area, but you never know. There are a couple listed in Cape May area. This is for a Leopard 38' which is currently on the hard and winterized. Difficult time of year to do this in this latitude with occasional sub freezing temps.

Good luck with the boat, shes a beautiful girl! W all the upgrades she has I wonder how critical the seatrial is? Could conclude the deal based on a land only survey leave $X amount of cash in. Escrow to cover any unforseen issues till it warms up and you seatrial then . I can tell you how they sail, slow and easy and not effected much by waves! Like a nice conformable tank. We were cruising 7.3 in about 15-18 knots of wind with a fairly fouled bottom might pick up an extra knot once cleaned. No slapping on any point of sail in 3-4' short seas, blew by a 42 catalina. Pinching close, Motored about 7.5 wot. Comfortable 6knots at 2500 rpms

Re: Surveyor Cape May NJ Area

Yes, both myself and my buyers broker think a sea trial could be avoided along with the launch and out haul fees. I know this boat design will be a radical departure from my prior boat (Stiletto 27'), but I think the trade off will be worth it considering it will be my home 6 months or so a year. The vessel has a couple of minor blemishes, but for a 99' is not bad. With 200 hours on the diesels there should be no problems there. We will likely do a start and run of the engines though as rewinterizing them is not that big of a deal as would be the case of a full blown sea trial with installation of sails, etc. Did you happen to sail a Leopard 38' based on your comments. BTW I am in Tampa Bay area for next few weeks.
