S.E. Michigan Surveyor Recommendation?

Checking the archives, I realize a specific recommendation seems unlikely but...

Anybody have any specific recommendations, or contra-recommendations, as to a surveyor in the S.E. Michigan area?

(I know about NAMS, SAMS and Navtech/USSA already.)

TIA,
Jim

SE Michigan survey

I had a very favorable experience with Jack Morman, he came highly recommended with good reason. No website, just google for him or look in the AMS directory.

Thanks for the references, duffer1960 and garymcg. Much appreciated. As you'll see elsewhere in this sub-forum, looks like I'll soon be needing a good surveyor

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.

Thanks, SD This one: 30' Pearson P30

The only thing I still haven't decided is whether to contract for a marine engine mechanic.

Looks like a pretty boat... Where will you be keeping her, assuming that the survey and sea trial go well...

Roundpond-

Welcome to Sailnet... and it would help if you said a bit about where you're from.

In many parts of the country, you can go down to various marinas or yatch clubs and volunteer as crew for boats...and pick up a bit of sailing experience there.

Many areas have community-based sailing programs, like Community Boating Inc in Cambridge, MA or Courageous Sailing Center, where you can learn to sail. You can take an ASA 101 "Learn to Sail" course.

You should probably go browse the Learn to Sail forum as well.

For this season, at least, we'll be keeping her at a friend's place right off Lake St. Claire. He's got something like four slips, only one of which he uses.

This is, in a way, actually how this entire adventure started. I don't recall when the conversation occurred, what we'd been talking about, how the subject came up, etc., but, at one point, he offered that if we ever wanted to have a boat on Lake St. Claire, we'd be more than welcome to use one of his slips.
