Annapolis Surveyor

Looking for a recommendation for a surveyor in Annapolis. The last 2 I used retired. Will be surveying a mid 80's -37 foot Tartan. Need to survey with next couple weeks.

Lon Acheson. Just google him and his info will pop up. I used him last year when I bought my boat. I was very pleased. He was very thorough. There were no surprises after the purchase.

Two years ago I used Steven Uhthoff with no regrets. Very thorough and no suprises after purchase. He's in Annapolis at 410-263-8980.

For our first survey, we used David Manning. He was very thorough, and was happy to show me everything he was seeing. He's listed on the boatus site.

David Manning is one I have used and recommended also. he is very thorough, professional, will climb the mast and is a small man and going into every compartment. he explains everything he sees and is an advocate to the person buying the boat. I would use him again.

You should consider Derek Rhymes--NAMS-CMS certified and SAMS accredited. I've used him for an accident survey and he was informative and thorough.

I second arf145's recommendation of Derek Rhymes
All boat & Yacht Inspections, LLC
410-268-4404
His pre-purchase survey 2 years ago for my boat was excellent. He spent the better part of a day on a sea trial, haul out and thorough boat inspection. And he answered the tons of questions I had.

Another vote for David Manning,

Manning Marine Survey
David Manning - Annapolis, MD
(410) 263-5852

Lots of good sailboat surveyors in that area but how many actually go up the mast? Something about a guy checking your rig with binoculars leaves me uneasy.

I second that, I used him for the pre-purchase survey of my 82 Morgan 416 and he was very thorough and saved me some money. He did his apprenticeship under Jack Horner.
