Surveyor in Long Island NY

Not sure if they already is a post for this but I am looking for a reliable surveyor in the Long Island NY area to conduct a survey. Has anyone had good or bad experiences with a surveyor in the area. Who to look for and who to look OUT for.

Thanks in advance.

The only guy i would hire in the NY, NJ, or CT area is Charle. He can be contacted at http://www.oceanismarine.com/

I used to make my living running boats up and down the east coast. I have had a number of surveyor's recommend me. I have had problems with some of the boats. But if Charle said it is an good boat it was an good boat.

That would be between you and Charlie. Whatever He charges it is well worth the money. I have seen his work, you will not find an better survey in the area.

SAB ... get a diesel mechanic...not a surveyor to look at the engine. Just find out who is authorized to service that brand in the area from the distributor's website.

Regards

A diesel mechanic can do an engine check provided the boat is in the water in less than an hour so I would figure 100 bucks unless there is travel involved.
For a complete survey you would expect to pay 6-800 for a 35-40' boat or 800-$1000 for a 40-50' boat. Perhaps a bit higher since it is NY.
I generally WAIT to have the engine surveyed by the diesel guy until the day of the sea trial. This accomplishes 2 things:
1. Avoids paying for an engine survey until all else has been surveyed and clear.
2. Gets the diesel guy out on the boat under power load which is where problems will often show up... a bit more expensive but more peace of mind this way.

I do believe that Charlie can send out an oil sample to get it analyzed prior to sea trail.

Don't bother with an oil sample. They are more useful as an ongoing series of tests to determine an engines condition. A simple oil and filter change can skew the results of any sampling for a new buyer.
