marine survey???

Recommended Posts

I am looking into a new boat and would like to have a survey performed before buying it. Does anyone have any references or experiences? I live in mid-michigan.

Thanks

Craig

Craig, I used a charter captain out of Grand Haven who was also a surveyor. He came highly recommended but for the life of me I can't remember his name. I was very happy with his work. I'll try to figure it out.

Yup, that's the guy. It's been a good year for me, I have been limited in the number of times I've been out but have done pretty good this year. I really can't complain. Too bad summer is ending fast.

I've heard of Mark but don't know him, and if you want a second choice, the guy to see is John Watson, formerly a DNR inspection officer, he is very thorough, and makes a great surveyor, he works hard for the pay too, I mean very hard too. What's the rate for this boat from Mark? I think Watson was about $300, last I knew.

Ed,

I am looking to have a boat surveyed in Ludington and called John Watson. His voicemail said he is out of commission (temporarily) due to a hip surgery. Would you know of another surveyor in the area? If not would you know someone with experience that could tag along, while I am looking at the boat?

So far since I am unable to find a surveyor in the area, I have been doing a lot of reading online and found this interesting article. http://www.pcmarinesurveys.com/Marine%20Survey%20101.htm

If he does not want to go that far, let me know and I can do some calling around up there to see where they had their surveying done by.

the guy that does the current charter inspections for the u.p. is

Marc Nugent out of Traverse City, MI (231) 649-6776

He travels where needed and has a good resume. Not sure on his rates other then the charter inspection.

Just got off the phone with Mark and he doesn't typically go that far this time of year, but after I look at the boat on Sat. and if I am satisfied with it, we might be able to work out a time. Thanks for the referrals.
