Looking for recommendations on good marine surveyors in the Annapolis area and eastern shore of Chesapeake (Rock Hall, Georgetown, etc.).

I was hoping to see some response to this thread because I am in the process of buying boat in this area also. I have found recommendations for four surveyors from other sources but I do not have any experience with any of them.
Turner/Kelsey Marine Surveyors 410-263-9520 or 423-336-2980

Manning Marine Surveys 410-263-5852

Annapolis Marine Surveys 410-263-8980

Anchor Marine Enterprises (410) 476-4666

I would love to hear some recommendations from people who have experience with any of these.
James

I have used Dave Manning and was very satisfied. He has been highly recommended here many times. I'm not familiar with the others. I found Dave Manning through Boat US, my insurer.

I was pleased with the work of Derek Rhymes, a protege' of Jack Hornor's, who was recommended by him.

I enjoy Jack Hornor's boat reviews and I believe he would do a good job.

Why don't you check out the marine surveyors listed on the Boat/US website? BoatUS: Marine Insurance - Marine Surveyors

We used Fred Hecklinger - very experienced, had a lot of insights into our specific boat and some offshore sailing tips in general, and we'd use him again. Disclaimer: ours was an insurance survey, not a buyers survey.

JUst a follow up. I tried to get David Manning, but he never answered his phone and I didn't want to pick someone that was difficult to get in touch with. I ended up using Karen Wiley Alt at Anchor Marine. I was very pleased! She is very thorough but does a great job of balancing realistic expectations on an older boat. Probably helped that the boat that I'm buying is in excellent shape and there were only a couple of issues to be addressed. She took her time on a pretty cold day, even though she was familiar with the boat, and even offered to stay and help me check out the engine.

David has been laid up with pretty serious back problems over the last six months I have heard

Marine Survey Anchor Marine

I appreciate the comments re. Karen Alt at Anchor Marine. Does anyone else have any experience with Anchor for a pre-purchase survey? Thanks!
