Re: Surveyor in RI?

Have used SImms Bros. for years for transportation. Do a good job for a honest price

Re: Surveyor in RI?

Thanks again, guys.

We put in an offer on the boat; the waiting game has begun.

Of course, I can't schedule anything until we agree on a price and then everything needs to happen at once.

I think she's a beauty:

Peter Hunt did my survey in 2011. I was pleased. Haven't found anything that yet that he should have found.

I had someone tell me that their survey did not include the engine. The surveyor said they just don't do it. This sounds crazy to me; that's probably the thing that needs it most. Comments?

Wish me luck,

I used Barnaby Blatch Atlantic Marine Survey, Connecticut and Rhode Island, USA - Barnaby Blatch SAMS® AMS®, NAMS® CMS for my last purchase, and recommend based on that work.

I've used 5-6 surveyors over time and all of them have limited their engine and rig commentary to "observations'. Most experts in something arn't experts in everything... You should hire both a engine surveyor and a rigger, this is money well spent.

These guys are excellent for transportation Yacht Service Marshfield, MA - Simms Brothers Marine but dont wait too long as everyone will be very busy soon.

That took a while as he sailed with the owner up the coast to Norwalk to be hauled for the hull check after the sea trial. I could not make that, but I know it took over half a day, and there was no extra charge. Adrian stayed with the flat rate per foot, despite having to make two trips across the state of CT. Hour-hour and a half each way. We talked a good bit on the phone, and he sent me a thorough report. I did buy the boat, and after a summer of cruising to include sailing the boat down the Jersey shore to the Chesapeake (for her new homeport), I had no surprises. I recommend Adrian.

I would second Johnson Marine in Mystic. They go above and beyond.

Ken Johnson even helped/taught me how to winterize systems when I combined a fall haul out with a pre-purchase survey.

I'll never forget
His words to someone who never owned anything with an inboard or complicated systems:

"If I was advising my son, I would tell him to buy this boat and if your gonna buy it go buy a case of antifreeze and some fogging oil and I'll walk you through the process, no need to pay the yard for something so simple."

Re: Surveyor in RI?

I wish that I used Peter Hunt; Peter Hunt Surveyor

I also wish that more people would use captainrated.com to find surveyors in their area, and post reviews of surveyors that they used...

(I also wish that I had a million dollars )

Re: Surveyor in RI?

Hi,

I used Barnaby Blatch in 2006 and again in 2013. I think he is very good.

Atlantic Marine Survey, Connecticut and Rhode Island, USA - Barnaby Blatch SAMS® AMS®, NAMS® CMS

If you speak to him please say hi for me.

Re: Surveyor in RI?

We used William Coble last year - he spent all day going through the boat and delivered quite a detailed report afterward. He also gave a lot of pointers during the survey. I would use him again in a heartbeat.
