Surveyor recommendation mid-way between Annapolis MD and Norolk VA

I'm looking for someone to survey a Caoe Dory sailboat located in Lancaster, Virginia, which is about 2 from Annapolis and 3 from Norfolk. I don't mind paying travel time for the right person.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks very much

I used Don McCann in Deltaville when I bought my first boat and was mostly satisfied though it seems to me these guys do miss some things in my experience.

Tranquil Waters Marine Services

The other surveyor in that area I'm familiar with is:

Peter W. Schacht Co.
P. O. Box 1172
Gloucester, Virginia 23061
804-824-4102 -O & R, 804-824-4102 -Mobile, 804-693-2453 -Fax
pwschacht_co@yahoo.com
Specialty: Yachts, Small Craft

He sank a deal on my boat that McCann had surveyed 3 years earlier and he sank a deal on my dockmates Tartan 37. This guy has a reputation for painting the worst possible picture and thereby sinking a lot of deals, so maybe he's the guy you want, but frankly, I don't think you can expect to by an older boat and not find a few warts so if you use this guy you may have to apply some of your own judgement.

I later sold that boat at near my asking price, but I forget who that buyer used for the survey. It might have been McCann.
