Marine Surveyor in St. Petersburg, Fl
Having seen and used different surveyors, I would heartily recommend Pete Brown. I first met him when he was surveying a boat that I was selling. He was very thorough. I later used him for my next purchase and for an insurance inspection. He literally looks and checks everything, including inspecting the standing rigging with a magnifying glass. I recently sold my boat to someone who used a different surveyor and was greatly surprised (although as the seller, not upset) by the cursory nature of the other, supposedly seasoned, surveyor''s inspection of the boat.
Incidentally, Pete Brown was in charge of Quality Control at Morgan (pre-Catalina) and also worked at GulfStar so he knows how to find manufacturing weaknesses and the damage that they do over the course of time. As a final note, I have no relationship to Pete and haven''t seen him in several years but the pleasure that comes from a good survey (and complete report) lasts years. Pete lives on Treasure Island ph. 727-367-2489 at last report.
