Re: Purchasing a Charter Catamaran from the Moorings

Actually, there are some very good Surveyors in Tortola. However like anywhere else, there are a couple that I would not recommend to anyone.
Sure, the charter vessels see a lot of use, but see a lot of regular maintenance also, which I feel is more important. Occasionally there is the idiot that thinks it's OK to abuse them because it's a 'rental' - but in reality this is rare in that area. It's mostly respectful sailors on vacation that are racing, anchoring, and docking on other peoples property. And fortunately the models in the Moorings fleet are of high quality and can handle most anything anyway.
