Re: Purchasing boat in Tortola
Zan seems straight up and I think would steer you right. However, I once had a boat surveyed in STT by a local and drew the conclusion, if I ever did it again, I'd bear the cost of flying in a local from the States. He was accredited by one of the agencies too, but that often doesn't mean much. In the grand scheme of things, a plane ticket, a couple of meals and a night or two in a hotel isn't as much as it sounds, given the likely purchase amount. I also like the idea that there is no way the seller and the surveyor have other business relationships or there is any concern they need to get along in the same boating community.
