Gemini Purchase! Now what?

As some of you may recall, my buddy was looking at a Gemini and I went to see it with him. He's now reached agreement on price with the seller and has a contract. He needs a surveyor, and assuming the sale goes through after survey and sea trial, he needs a recommendation of a good yard that's fair, honest and reasonably priced, particularly considering that he's going to be dealing with all this stuff long distance.

So with that, can anyone make recommendations of a surveyor and yard in Deltaville? Keep in mind that it's a Gemini, so a surveyor and yard experienced with cats could be useful (the yard work he wants is not really cat specific, so it's less of an issue there).

Also, is there a size limit on the dink they can get in terms of the amount of room between the hulls for use with the davits?

Thanks all.

Just curious, but which one did you take off the market? We were in the process of making plans to go look at "Too Much Fun" when we got word they had accepted an offer...

Keep in mind that I didn't buy it (a friend did), but I believe the boat's name is Shallow Pockets.

Oh, yes, I saw an ad for that one. Okay, well, that takes two of them off the board. There are still a few on the market, but the newer 105Mcs we like ( newer than 2001 that is) tend to either be equipped with stuff we don't want, or located someplace difficult for us. But the right boat will come along sooner or later. We are convinced the only two boats on the market that will meet our needs are the Geminis and the TomCat 9.7s. Everything else draws too much water.

There is a 2004 Gemini that pops into our marina every other month. The fella who owns it uses the boat to travel from Chesapeake to Cape Canaveral, Fl on a regular basis. He's wrecked his transom carrying a dinghy. His last visit, he needed major repairs before he was able to leave.

I believe he will forgo carrying a dinghy in the davits, in the future as he's determined that the Geminis are too lightly built to carry one for Ocean sailing. PM me for details

Why don't you invite your, ahem, "friend" to join, and ask questions himself?
At least that is what they told me at stdinfo.com

I had a PDQ 32 (very similar )surveyed in Deltaville ~ 14 months ago.

I was pleased with the work.

The yard was Gratitude and there were no surprises, but all they did was haul and clean. They do have a lift wide enough for the Gemini.

Re. the dink, don't know. A PDQ is wider. However, I think they carry it above the hulls, no?

He really should be asking on the Gemini Yahoo group - he'll find it someday anyway.
