Picking a surveyer

hamiam is right - DO NOT use a surveyor recommended by the broker unless he is also one you have found through other sources. The best source is:

These surveyors have been screened by BoatUS, are members of one of the two major surveyors associations, and are accepted by their insurance.

Next best is a search of NAMS or SAMS (google search to find) and pick one from their list.

I strongly suggest not hiring a surveyor who is not a member of the two organizations unless you can personally vouch for their ability.
