Long Island Surveyor

Hi
We are new to this board, and are hoping that some of the experts here can give us a recommendation for a surveyor. We have made an offer on a 42'' sailboat on the north shore of Long Island, and we don''t know anyone from this area. We are looking for a pre-purchase surveyor and an engine surveyor. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
Christy & Bill

Hey Eric
The boat is at the owners home. I spoke to David today and my one concern is that he will not go up the mast, I''m not sure if that is the norm. I called 2 other surveyors and they have not returned my calls?????? HELP!

I assume the boat is in the water.
if it is it has to be very close to my home. as there are very few homes that can dock a sailboat.what is the owners name address. maybe i have seen the boat and can help you. Is The boat located at harbour point? if it is it is right outside my window.
do you find it is mandatory to go up the mast on the initial survey?
i have had many boats surveyed and have never sent anyone up the mast. I dont know of surveyers to go up the mast.you can get a pretty good idea of the condition of the rig by just checking the way the halyards work,the furlers work,inspect the rigging wire and fittings at the turnbuckles,also look at the mast step,and the wiring at the step, and check the operation of the lights and electronics. You can look with binocs at the end of the spreaders and that should get you to about 99 %. I usually go up the mast before every blue water passage just to check the attachment points of the rig
but i think doing that on a survey is not necessary. You could also go up yourself and look around.
fair winds,
eric

Hi Eric
Yes the boat is in the water.....it was at Britannia, but has been moved recently to the owners home. I do not know how to send PM''s on this site, you can contact me at Chr1stee@aol.com for the owner''s info and name! At any rate, we have a survey scheduled this Monday, and you are right NO ONE goes up the mast. LOL We will check out the rigging as best as we can and will probably go up the mast ourselves since we will have a "decent" sail home, should we buy this boat! Thanks for your advice and helpful info.......
Christy & Bill

P.S. We are using Dave, as it turns out 3 other people recommended him, including some good friends of ours who bought a Pearson 36 on LI several years ago...it is a small world!
