I don't know Mr. Hirst and this comment is probably going to generate some push back. I have used surveyors in the virgin islands and, like most things there, find them very laid back, hard to schedule and hard to determine if they have the same sense of urgency or seriousness. The only full purchase survey I had done, took twice as long as it should have. Very disorganized, two hour lunch breaks, etc. I will say that I had that entire survey done, emailed to me and never asked for a penny until after I had it. I did pay, of course. But that is probably the up side of the laid back approach. I didn't buy that boat, btw.
Anyway, if I were to do it again, I would seriously consider flying my own surveyor in from the States. You should also be there, regardless of who does it.
