Re: Angry at my surveyor....
In all fairness, the surveyors aren't regulated any any kind of license or common standards...
There are two independent organizations within the United States that accredit marine surveyors, SAMS and AMS. Any surveyor who is accredited by either of these does, in fact, have to adhere to specified standards.
I would never even consider hiring a surveyor who was not accredited.
