Seattle Surveyors? Anacortes? Bellingham?
Hi There,

I'm about to make an offer and BEFORE I do, I'd love to have some Surveyor recommendations already lined up. I know the broker will have some suggestions, but I always feel a little conflicted given the source.

Ideally it'd be someone with bluewater boat experience/knowledge. Also, I'd prefer someone who actually did all the review that their report mentions (ie. I hate when the surveys says "...did not test, but was reported as fully functional." I want them to go over EVERYTHING.

No responses? I'll be heading down that way myself in a couple of months and was wondering the same thing. Anyone PM you with a recomendation?

There is a very good surveyor in Bellingham, less than an hour from Anacortes. His name is Matt Harris and I think he is the very best in the PNW.

I have to second Bob's advice. Matt Harris without a doubt. A real BUYERS SURVEYOR. Want to know the condition of your boat as if you were going to put your family onboard? Known as the "deal killer" and avoided like the plage by selling brokers. Don't have personal experience but he will be doing my survey July 15, 2013.

Lynne Reister, great surveyor very thorough. It was just what I was looking for when buying my boat last year.
