Surveyor, Deltaville, VA area

Will be looking at some boats in the Deltaville, VA area and was wondering if anyone knows of any quality surveyors in that area. Am purchasing for long term liveaboard, so a good survey is important to establishing a realiztic budget.

Any info on good, or bad, surveyors would be greatly appreciated.

John

PBzeer,

I bought my Colgate 26 in Deltaville last year, and used Ken Julian (AMS). I felt he was quite good, and reasonable too.

He''s at boatsurveyor@earthlink.net

Ken Julian did my survey as well 3 years ago. He will go over all sorts of extra information that won''t be in the report. He is a sailor with several of his own old boats. He does not go up the stick. Bay Area Rigging in Deltaville does and are the best riggers for a very long ways.

Ken also offered to charge only half price if you decide early during the survey that the boat is not for you and won''t need a report.

We did the haul out, survey, and sea trial over the course of a full day. We started the engine cold and ran everything that could be run. He found the most serious problems and I got a new transmision added to the deal so I felt like I got good value for the service. He took a lot of pictures and put them on a CD.

He lives on the VA Northern Neck in Lancaster.
