Seeking surveyor in Portland ME

Greetings everyone,

Great forum. By way of introduction, I'm a married woman in my forties--grew up sailing on family boats on the Gulf of Mexico and Chesapeake Bay and am making the big leap to all that comes with personal boat ownership. I'm in the market for a roughly 30 foot liveaboard in the Portland area, where I'm starting a new job this summer. I'll be living aboard for the summer only--my husband and pets will be arriving in the fall, at which point I return to land. We live in NC now and are heading up to assess some likely prospects in early May. Any recommendations for a good surveyor? Thanks!

Valerie

Tony Theriault is one of the most thorough and does an excellent survey. When I am not on my phone I will look up his contact info.

I had Merrill Hall do one for my insurance and I felt that he did a pretty good job. He works for Hathaway marine surveyors in Portland. He might be worth looking into.

Many thanks, guys. Four out of eight of my prospects have been eliminated at first contact--2 with meaningful water damage to the hull, found only at recent inspections. Really brings home the point about using a moisture meter before calling in the surveyor. I'm expanding my search area to include NH/MA--we'll see.

What do you mean they have water damage to the hull??? You do know that bottom paint, among other things, can cause the hull to read as wet, when it isn't, right?

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.
