Need a surveyor in R.I.

I am looking at a boat on the east side of RI. Need some recommendations for surveyors. I like the boat and have done a very thorough inspection but I'm not a surveyor!

To further complicate things, I live in VA. Don't know anyone in that area.
Any suggestions???

Tony Knowles has a great reputation
Welcome
He used to do just full days, to be more expensive than some others, and tend to have a full schedule...but my advice here is like hiring a heart surgeon...get the best.

Hello

In 2006 I used Barnaby Blatch from Atlantic marine surveyors
Atlantic Marine Survey, Connecticut and Rhode Island, USA - Barnaby Blatch SAMS® AMS®

He did a great job - climbed the rig, tested the engine, etc. He was very thorough and I would use him again in a second

Good luck
Barry

I suggest that you take a look at the Captain Rated section of ActiveCaptain.com. US-New-England*«*United States*«*Surveyors*«*Services*«*CaptainRated*

There is a listing of all surveyors in a geographical area, and some of them have ratings.

I tried to get Tony Knowles, but he was booked months in advance, and did not seem interested in my measly 35 foot survey. He tried to help me out, however, and suggested another surveyor. I would not recommend the guy that he did.

Someone that I wish I had employed was Peter Hunt. Marine and Yacht Surveyors Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine , CT, SAMS AMS surveyor I met Peter after I had my vessel surveyed, and he seemed like a fair guy. Also, his website is very informative.
