The broker recommended a local surveyor, but I chose to pay twice as much and bring into this highly rural area a Minneapolis surveyor with a big reputation. (I have to pay $65/hour for his drive time -- thus doubling the cost of the survey.) I found him through a Mason 33 owner, who lives in Minneapolis, but keeps his boat in the same Marina in which the Mason 44 is located. I wasn't comfortable with the potential conflict of interest involved in using the local surveyor who might be beholding to the broker because of referrals.
