Question Surveyor recommendations - vancouver

Hi All,
I am looking for a reputable and very thorough surveyor in the Vancouver area. Excuse my newbiness but if I want the rigging to be checked over do I need a rigging specialist or do most surveyors cover this?? Thanks.

Dustin

If the surveyor is competent with sailboats, he can give you a rough idea about the rigging, but a rigging specialist would give you much more of an idea of what kind of condition it is in. Whether you do it or not really depends on what boat you're looking at...the more expensive the boat, the more likely you should spend the few extra bucks on getting a rigger to look. Same goes for the engine...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I've posted this here before, but here goes; In the Vancouver area myself and others have had a good experience with Phil Oldham. Have used him for purchase and insurance surveys, and have been happy with surveys he's done on boats I've sold.
