I couldn't agree more !!! When my boat was surveyed last week I was pointing out things to the surveyor
that I had previously noticed and he was skipping right over. Part way through the survey
I stopped doing it to see how many things he would miss. It was ridiculous. My port genoa
block has cracks in the sheave that are visible 20' away, yet he sat down right next to it not taking notice so I started tapping it with my foot and he looked right at it and still didn't notice it was broken. AND THEN, to top it all off, there was an old plastic pint bottle of smirinoff in a cabinet with 2 or 3 gulps left in it and the guy grabs it and takes a swig right in front of me and the seller! UNBELIEVABLE!!! I gave him the rest of the bottle as a tip! Hecklinger was his name.
The one good thing I can say is that he took the job on 1 days notice. The surveyor
that was suppose to do it, that I had been in contact with the whole previous week miraculously forgot he had ever even talked to me and left me hanging the day before when I called to give him directions. Peter Schact out of Urbana, VA and he came highly reccommended.
The moral of this story is... Don't count on Peter Schact!
