New boat surveyor in Annapolis

I've decided that it would be a good idea to find a surveyor to do an acceptance survey of my fresh-from-the-factory boat before I accept her. Has anyone done this and are there any recommendations for a surveyor in the Annapolis area.
I'm hoping that such a survey is going to be less effort and thus cost less than a full survey of the type one would do when purchasing a used boat.

We worked with this gentleman 2 years ago on our (old) boat for insurance purposes and found him quite reasonable. I'm thinking a survey for insurance would be closer to your purpose than a survey for purchase?

I'm not sure what the survey classification would be. There are a number of items installed post-production locally that should be checked and that the factory didn't miss doing major items - I won't be able to be present so am thinking of having a professional do this for me. Thanks!

Don't know one, but you might ask Dick Vosbury at Vosbury Marine in Annapolis. They're *very* reputable folks and they've been there a long time.

+1 on Dave Manning. IMHO, you probably want a full survey just like a used boat.

I know dealers who send a surveyor to the factory before they accept a boat. It is always money well spent.

If the boat is already at the dealer then same thing. All findings will be warranty items and you will never be in a stronger position than before you hand over the final payment

Would someone have David Manning's e-mail address handy and could PM it to me?
Many thanks!

Don't have his email. Your dealer might have it or can get it for you. An Annapolis sailboat dealer is going to know Dave.
