I used Fred Wise out of Galena, which is just up the road from Rock Hall. I thought he did a good job on my C-34. I've had the boat 3 years now and haven't found any issues he missed.

Re: Can You Recommend a Boat Surveyor in Rock Hall MD?

Just bought a 82 cape dory in kent county near the rock hall area. We used a young guy from Kent Island that dosent charge for travel. Very thorough report with videos. Was skeptical at first but he was very knowledgeable and actually caught a small but deep stress crack on the port chainplate. Saved us some money on the deal. Anyhow my 2 cents me and my wife were happy, best of luck!!

I think his name is Travis but i know the company name is
Corsica River Marine Surveys

Peter Hartoft will come over from Annapolis. He did a good job when I bought my boat. Remember though, no surveyor will see or catch everything. Expect to find things well after you purchase. Just the nature of the beast.

Re: Can You Recommend a Boat Surveyor in Rock Hall MD?

Interstingly enough, I too am looking for a surveyor in rock hall area. Im hoping i can get a very basic survey done to check the structural integrety of a cal 28 at "the wharf at Handys point".

There is some rotten wood around the bulkhead where the chainplate attaches too; im prepared to fix that, but i want to see if theres anything else i need to worry about before i can sail her.

I was hoping to not spend more then 200$, but after a quick google search I see a full inspection will be around 450$ for that size boat, thats really pushing it since the boat is only for 2k and my max budget after repairs is 2.5k.

If you find someone willing to just come out for .5-1 hr please let me know!

Also, interestingly enough, the guy selling the boat, his name is David too, but he says hes in NJ, not Connecticut.. Is that you Dave? Its Chris lol

EDIT: ive been able to find someone to look at the boat, hes offered to, "check the boat out structurally (the decks, bulkheads, and rigging from the deck). I can do that and an informal report for $250." He is a SAMS surveyor, check him out here: http://www.yachtexam.com/ his name is Kyle
