Rig & Engine Surveyors in LA

I'm currently evaluating a 1978 Kelly Peterson 44 which lies in Los Angeles. Date for the survey is already fixed, but I'd like to do separate rigging and engine surveys because of her age.


Does anyone know capable people in the LA/Long Beach area?


Thanks guys

the best surveyor ever lives in san diego. if you want an honest survey , kjels christian of christian and assoc is THE one to get. yes pricey. yes HONEST. he is the surveyor that sellers donot like to see coming as he will tell all.
if you want specific items surveyed, kjels i am sure can refer you to someone equally honest.
best of luck.

Re: Rig & Engine Surveyors in LA

I've just had a phonecall with Marine Diesel Services | One Stop Shop for Diesel Services, they charge 135$/hour for an engine survey that will take about half a day.

I guess the money for an engine survey for a 5500 hrs motor is worth it anyway, but is that a normal price in this area?

Re: Rig & Engine Surveyors in LA

Half a day sounds a bit excessive. You can pull oil yourself and send for analysis if that is,enough for you.


I would ask what they ck. For that much time should be able to ck compression of all cylinders, pressurize cooling system to ck for leaks, adjust valves and more.

What is the name of the boat? Might know some history of it.

If anyone is looking too in the area, we had a very pleasant experience with the following people:

Rigging survey:

+1 310-549-1800
Allan did a quick, excellent rig survey

Engine survey:
Coast to Coast Marine Diesel, Inc.
Coast to Coast Marine ,Marine electrical in Los Angles ,long beach and Del rey
+1 310-547-1700
Ask for Sheldon, he's a superstar and did the best engine survey we could have possibly asked for.

Marine survey:
Christian & Co, San Diego
www.themarinesurveyors.com

We had the survey done by George Jarvie, cool knowledgeable guy. Totally would have him do a survey again.
