Surveyor recommendations, Annapolis?

Ahoy,
Would anyone care to give some surveyor recommendations in the Annapolis area. Of course, Pacific Seacraft expertise is desired, though not the primary consideration. More importantly, proven sailboat expertise.
Thanks in advance.

Derek at All Boat Surveys has done 2 boats for me. I'd bet he has seen many PS.
Good luck!

I've used David Manning several times and he is, without doubt, the best surveyor I've ever used.

In Janaury 2009, I purchase PSC 1986 34' from Crusader Yacht sales and use Tarn Kelsy of Kelsey & Turner Marine Survey, I felt he get excellent job.

+1 on Kelsey and Turner. Bob Turner spent half a day on our boat during our sea trial. Even went up the mast.

Re: Surveyor recommendations, Annapolis?

Surveyor requests come up on SailNet all the time. I continually recommend that people use CaptainRated* which has online reviews of surveyors by geography. It's a GREAT tool!

For some reason, this doesn't seem to stick, so I continue to recommend... <sigh>

I have no affiliation with the website, I just wish that more people would use it.

Didn't know you could rate surveyors there. I just gave Derek 5 stars.
Thanks.

Tarn Kelsey just did our PSC 37. He knows sailboats and has experience with PSC. 4 hours on land and 2 on sea trial. Very pleased.

Re: Surveyor recommendations, Annapolis?

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to comment on Tarn Kelsey. Absolutely the worst survey I've ever had! He seemed to do a thorough job, but there were leaking ports that he failed to identify. The seller had the boat detailed just before the survey to hide all of the issues that the leaks were causing. Within a week of settlement the mold had completely taken over the cabin. I've been able to fix the ports but I am still finding mold growing on wood, in the transom on the fiberglass and I've had to throw out all of my cushions... ALL of them. Salon, V-Berth and Aft-Berth.

I specifically asked him about the smell coming from the fresh water system. He brushed me off and told me it was probably from the anti-freeze that they used for winterizing. He didn't even check the fresh water tank. When I opened the tank lid I found... I don't even know what. Clumps of mold or some sort of bacteria growing inside the tank.

DO NOT USE TARN KELSEY AS YOUR SURVEYOR. If there are any hidden issues he will not find them because he isn't looking. He performs superficial surveys only. I don't think he and Bob Taylor are partners any longer.
