Re: Angry at my surveyor....
Last surveyor my insurance company sent to do a survey on my boat was a contract surveyor who had never set foot on a sailboat with an inboard diesel engine before. She had a checklist that she had to complete that included all the CG reg requirements and some other simple to check things. I walked her through the list and pointed out what she needed to check to complete her list and explained the attributes she should be looking for at each item. I hesitate to use the word "clueless" but the word does come to mind.
My company is one of the top rated insurance companies in the world and insures my house/car/boat/valuables and I have an umbrella policy with them. They have carried my boat policy for 30 years.
Why the company gives boat surveys such short shrift I don't know...but I am confident the company will stand by their contract with me if I have a loss.
