We were hit by another vessel and now need to get a repair estimate of the damages for insurance
purposes. We have gelcoat
damage, a bent bow roller and will also need someone who can inspect the stem fitting and forestay to verify that the rigging
is not damaged.
We’re now in Stuart, FL and will be here for the next month or so. Can anyone recommend a marine surveyor
in the Stuart area or a marine
repair facility that can do a comprehensive estimate?
Names of surveyors we’ve picked off the Internet
include Mark Clarke, Doug Birely, Dick Learned, Brian Galley
, and Dave Padden. The only name of a repair facility we have is Top Notch Yacht Refinishers. Any experiences good or bad are appreciated.
