Lester & Lester Marine survey
1272 Scott Street
San Diego, Ca. 92106
619.742.4594

Leroy Lester NAMS-CMS

The reason I went with Leroy was his history in the field and the fact the broker said he was usually a deal breaker, meaning he was critical

Also Admiralty Marine for engine survey

Tell us about Leroy! Why is he good?
Can't tell ya why he's good, hell, he could be the worst out there, I don't have a bad to compare him too, but having said that;

When I was in search of a surveyor, his name came up more the once, when I told the broker who I intended to use, the look on the brokers face was like he was watching his commission go out the door, said Leroy was known as a deal breaker and was overly critical. I figured if I was putting my wife and family on this boat that I was putting out hard earned cash for, then that's the person I want to survey it.

I felt he was thorough in his portion of the survey ( all but rigging and eng. ) made comments regarding the eng. & rigging which were supported later by a rigging & eng. survey. He left the impression during the survey of someone unbiased, he was not there to do anything other than his job regardless of the outcome. He made his report, told me his concerns and recommendation, I made the final judgement call.

Lester & Lester is but one of many and is/was only a suggestion

PS: I got the same kind of survey service from Admiralty Marine on the engine

I would use Lester & Lester again and I still use Admirialty Marine whenever needed

Hey for those of you guys who had the survey done through Lester and Lester I have a couple questions if you dont mind asking. Were you allowed to be present at the time of the survey? If so how long did it take? Also, how much did it cost? And how much time was needed untill the results to came in?

Lastly, regarding engine surveyors do you have any reccomendations? I did some searches on "Admiral Marine" and didnt come up with anything.
