Surveyor in RI

Just had an offer accepted on a Hunter in the RI area and now am in need of a Surveyor. Any recomendations would be greatly appreaciated. Hopefully a surveyor who is familiar with early 90's Hunters would be best. Additionally, what is the current going rate for a surveyor.

And finally, I will also be looking for a lawyer who is familiar with boat purchases to handle the legal details. Any suggestions in the RI area would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Ken

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.

Paul Brinkman is an excellent surveyor and he's based in Portsmouth I think. By the way, people in New England don't usually use lawyers to do the purchase and sale contracts on boats, so your seller is going to look at it a little funny. But, just for fun, if you want me to give it a read over for you, I will. I'm a lawyer, and I've boat and sold a decent number of boats.

I also recommend Capt. Paul Shaw, he did a survey for me last Fall and it was thorough and properly done.

Hello,

I used Barnaby Blatch when I bought a boat in Newport.

Atlantic Marine Survey, Mystic, Connecticut, USA - Barnaby Blatch SAMS® AMS®

He was great - he went up the mast and inspected the rig from the masthead on down.

If you contact him, please say hello for me.

Barry

You aren't serious, are you???

In case you are... a boat surveyor is much like a home inspector. You hire them to look over the boat and tell you what kind of condition it is in and what is wrong with it. The results of the survey will often be used to adjust the selling price of the boat.

If you are buying a boat, a survey is basically a very, very good idea.

Ken,

i concur use a lawyer, title search is important and too often neglected. Try a guy named Dave Meegan in North Kingstown, RI 401.twoninefour1100. or email him at meeganesqriATAOLdotCOM.

good luck, hunters are nice.

I was serious, but the reason I asked is because I would have thought that this was done before the deal was made, not after. I thought buying a boat was more like buying a car, but apparently it is more like buying a house.
