Good Surveyor in N. WI?
I just made an offer on a 40+ foot sailboat located on Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin. If I buy it, I'll truck it to California, where I'll do some refitting and installations -- then move it to its new home port of Ensenada, Mexico (60 miles south of San Diego). I was there three weeks ago, and I've found a wonderful marina. I intend to spend the next few winters cruising Mexico, and use the boat in the Ensenada area during the summer. Denver will continue to be my primary residence.
Does anyone know of a qualified surveyor in northern Wisconsin, or should I consider flying in someone to do the inspection? There's a lot of money involved, and it's a complex boat.
I'm starting to look for a surveyor now, because one of the terms of the offer is a reasonably quick close.
