I used Gail Browning from Hartoft Marine Survey (http://www.hartoftmarinesurvey.com/). She was very professional, found a major problem that I had not detected, and was very complete. The survey report was inclusive and ran about 30 pages. I highly recommend them. The boatus.com website has a number of other surveyors listed too.

We used Bob Turner from Kelsey-Turner. He was wonderful and pulled apart half the boat to see inside everything. Good portions of the interior were pulled apart to look for water instrusion, chainplate leakage and bedding, etc. He also came out on the sea trial with us. He was meticulous! Our report was also about 30 pages.

I highly recommend Jack Hornor. In addition to a surveyor, he also is a genuine naval architect. He does boat reviews for both the BOAT/US magazine, and for SpinSheet. He knows his stuff. Name of his company is Marine Survey and Design. www.msdco.com

I also used Gail Browning to survey an S2 11.0A that I did buy. Excellent work, very competent and I believe she is on the Boat U.S. recommended list and relied upon by them for insurance purposes.

I used Mike Kaufman once and I though he was great. A lot of attention to detail and a nice person.

I can recommend David Manning, Manning Marine Survey, PO Box 4414, Annapolis, MD 21403, 410-263-5852, FAX 410-268-3183.

FWIW, you can read about the survey of my boat here: http://sailing.thorpeallen.net/Greyh...seProcess.html

and the actual survey report here:
http://sailing.thorpeallen.net/Greyhawk/Manning.pdf

Also, his report was accepted by Boat/US for insurance purposes.

Thanks everyone. As always this site and its users are a great resource. I've read that surveyors sometimes charge by the foot. Is that right? Is there a price variation or a going rate that I can expect from all of them?

All surveyors charge by the foot, prices will vary slightly..pick the one you feel most comfortable with or can meet your schedule all those above are fine. Only one I do not know is Bob Turner.
