About to visit St. Petersburg, FL for survey, sea trial, etc. My name is Porter Watson, live on Big Island, and am freelance underwater cinematographer. The boat is a Tayana 37, and I´ve never been aboard one, but been looking and (hopefully)learning for couple years now.
Undoubtedly will have jillions of questions later, and nice to know a wealth of info is available.
Thanks for your replies. Would also like to get recommendations for surveyor in St. Petersburg area. Thanks again,
Contact Randy Balcome 727-239-6585, he runs a mobile yacht detail business and knows everybody. He's a good man and honest, he'll steer you to the right surveyor, he might even know the boat your going to look at.
Full disclosure, I worked with/for randy in the summer of 2010 and he is a friend of mine
