I had a PDQ 32 (very similar )surveyed in Deltaville ~ 14 months ago.

So with that, can anyone make recommendations of a surveyor and yard in Deltaville? Keep in mind that it's a Gemini, so a surveyor and yard experienced with cats could be useful (the yard work he wants is not really cat specific, so it's less of an issue there).

Also, is there a size limit on the dink they can get in terms of the amount of room between the hulls for use with the davits?

Thanks all.
I was pleased with the work.

The yard was Gratitude and there were no surprises, but all they did was haul and clean. They do have a lift wide enough for the Gemini.

Re. the dink, don't know. A PDQ is wider. However, I think they carry it above the hulls, no?

He really should be asking on the Gemini Yahoo group - he'll find it someday anyway.
