Can you trust a survey??

Just purchased my boat and used a surveyor out of Annapolis, MD.
Since this is my first boat and with limited knowledge on what to expect from a surveyor I got info. off this site from other boaters out there and proceeded from there.
I contacted several surveyors and had them explain to me what their servicers consisted of.
I then picked who I thought was the best from those spoken to and went from there crossing my fingers. I also spoke in depth with my broker who had recommended several. I didn''t opt for any he recommended due to the fact that he was selling the boat and I felt they might be partial to him. When I gave him the name of the person(company) I was thinking of he said they were good.
I got what I paid for and felt quite satisfied in the results.
If your on the east coast and within a reasonable distance from Annapolis, MD and want the surveyors name and contact info. send me an "e" mail
