When I had my O-30 surveyed I was very impressed with the professionalsim, of the gentleman doing the survey. This was out of Deale MD Harrington Harbor. forgot his name. I have pages and pages of text, photos, and details. He even found things I never thought of, and I like to think I know something about boats LOL. It was necessary money well spent imho. sorry you didn't get a good one Dogs.
I live very near Deale, MD.
Could you please look at your survey docs and try to find the name of your surveyor? I might like to retain him for a survey of my vessel, to upgrade to better insurance.
