Surveyor recommendation needed - MD eastern shore
Hi all,
I've searched through the archives, but figured I'd ask for a few new recommendations as well. I'm looking for a surveyor on the Eastern Shore of MD (or is willing to travel there). Experience and being incredibly thorough is most important to me, and I really appreciate a surveyor who will go aloft to check out the standing rigging, as well as being good at evaluating diesel engines (even if they are not official an engine surveyor). Of course this may be a tall order, but I'm hoping someone here has a recommedation or two.

Just as an FYI, Gale Browning doesn't go aloft. Hornor and Manning were the only two I spoke to that would go aloft as a matter of course.

The yard where the boat we purchased was located would not allow Mr. Manning to go aloft though. Said their insurance prohibited it, unless I hired a lift, so I didn't get the full inspection I wanted, but we bought the boat anyway.
