Good surveyor around Seattle or Everett?

I'm looking into buying a 27' boat and welcome suggestions for or against vendors for a pre-purchase survey.

4 years ago we had a good experience with Erik Bentzen in Seattle. He was thorough, knowledgable and I believe his rate at the time was $12/foot. Survey took approximately 5 hours including preliminary in-water inspection and haulout.

A through report with a good range of pictures came in the mail within a week, but as we were able to be present during the whole affair we already had a good idea of where things stood.

Though we were experienced buyers by then, I think he would do well by a newcomer too.

Thanks. This would be a private-party sale so I want to make sure I go through it carefully. One of the potential boats has no bilge pump -- the bilge is currently dry but there's some rust in there, evidence of a couple inches in the past so the state of the bolts concerns me, of course it's a 30 year old boat.

I used Berg Marine Surveys and couldn't have been happier. He's up in Anacortes but I think he heads south fairly often. He's an amazing guy, has sailed the South Pacific and really knows his stuff. Westsail 28 Ľ survey
