Hi all - new to the forum (after lurking a bit). I'm in the process of buying
a Island Spirit 37 catamaran- a pretty rare find (at least in this neck of the woods).
My question - does anyone have the name of a good surveyor
in SE Wisconsin (maybe as far south as Chicago?). I have a list from the broker- but would prefer a recommendation from someone who isn't highly motivated to close the sale
Not that it's pertinent to this question- but here's a bit of introduction/ meet and greet... My family
(wife and 3 daughters - 13, 11, 9) are taking a bit of a 'break' from our comfortable/ 'traditional' life and heading to the Caribbean
for a few years (planning on 2). So... not too uncommon of a situation on this forum - and one we can't wait to begin. We're planning to live on the boat
this summer in Lake Michigan while continuing to work
, and sailing weekends to get fully acquainted with the boat
, living in a smaller space,etc. Then, heading south in October.
Anyway - a key part of this entire plan is to start with a solid / seaworthy
vessel - thus, the ask for a good surveyor
(to help minimize the risk of buying
Thanks in advance -
