Surveyor for San Diego Area

After doing a search on the forum, I was surprised that I didn't find any recommendations for a surveyor in San Diego.
Anyone know a good one?

I know this was a few months ago, but I am wondering if you found a good one. I am about to need one myself.

No, but I'm going to ask around and use the list of accredited surveyors. Hey! Don't go buying my boat, now, ya hear!
I'll post back when I've narrowed the search down.
Good luck!

Lester & Lester Marine survey
1272 Scott Street
San Diego, Ca. 92106
619.742.4594

Leroy Lester NAMS-CMS

The reason I went with Leroy was his history in the field and the fact the broker said he was usually a deal breaker, meaning he was critical

Also Admiralty Marine for engine survey

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

1974 Ranger 33


Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't

That's actually one that I called for quotes yesterday. I'm glad to hear that he's good.

Snort, hopefully we aren't eyeballing the same boats!

Can't tell ya why he's good, hell, he could be the worst out there, I don't have a bad to compare him too, but having said that;

When I was in search of a surveyor, his name came up more the once, when I told the broker who I intended to use, the look on the brokers face was like he was watching his commission go out the door, said Leroy was known as a deal breaker and was overly critical. I figured if I was putting my wife and family on this boat that I was putting out hard earned cash for, then that's the person I want to survey it.


I felt he was thorough in his portion of the survey ( all but rigging and eng. ) made comments regarding the eng. & rigging which were supported later by a rigging & eng. survey. He left the impression during the survey of someone unbiased, he was not there to do anything other than his job regardless of the outcome. He made his report, told me his concerns and recommendation, I made the final judgement call.


Lester & Lester is but one of many and is/was only a suggestion


PS: I got the same kind of survey service from Admiralty Marine on the engine

I would use Lester & Lester again and I still use Admirialty Marine whenever needed

Thanks, Pappy! That's a good enough recommendation for me.
Heinous- How many hulls does your boat have?
