I would HIGHLY recommend Tarn Kelsey. https://kelseymarinesurvey.com
He did an out of water survey
with us for insurance
purposes once, and spent a lot of time on the boat... very thorough. Then later when we were selling the boat, he was hired independently by the buyers, and he did another terrific job-- for them. While I would have liked him to value our boat a little higher at the time (you know, there's always that emotional investment when selling your "baby"), we felt he did right by the buyers. And, I would hire him again in a heartbeat if I was buying a boat
or the surrounding area.
Also, I would HIGHLY recommend Steve Uthoff. It's just that last time I was in Annapolis, Steve wasn't doing surveys... but only because he is a gelcoat
MASTER and just had a lot of work
going on in that part of his business at the time. But that was a couple of years ago, so things could be different now. Definitely knows his stuff, and worth asking as well. We spent several years in the boatyard restoring our boat before we went sailing, and got to know Steve as a result. He's an "institution" in the Annapolis/Baltimore area... and in a good way.
One more thing: I will private message you with someone I would NOT recommend. Personal experience that I would like to share, but you can use it as a data point if relevant to other responses you receive... I just don't feel the need to "fling poo" across the entire forum. (I am a retired naval officer, so I "grew up" learning
to praise in public and reprimand in private.)
Hope it helps, and good luck with the Oyster!
