On what planet?
As Paul says, I've never met or even heard of a surveyor who goes up the mast. Riggers go up the mast, no one else routinely does. You want a surveyor to go aloft, you call a rigger and get a rigging survey. From a rigger. You want an engine tested, you get an engine survey, from a mechanic. General surveyors don't do detailed engine tests, either.
A surveyor? Yeah, checks the boat for many things, and doesn't check others. Might tell you there are rats in the rope locker, won't tell you how many there are.
Surveyor up the stick? Yeah, reminds me of why the angel on top of the xmas tree has such a surprised look on her face. (Oooooh!)
Our surveyor went up our mast.
