East coast FL surveryor

Need some recommendations for a good surveyor. Melbourne area. Boat is kind of complicated so I need a very thorough person.

Also how about a good Cummins 6BTA engine surveyor.

EXCELLENT surveyor in Ft. Laud. named Kurt Merolla. Extremely thorough and i', sure he will travel to Melbourne. Best Cummins people I have dealt with from NY to FL are the guys in Stuart FL. Can't remember the name; but they are associated with Whittaker boats. Excellent and very honest. Jim Dragseth is the boss; a great guy.

For engines, call Capt. Tim at Florida Marine Diesel.
He is also in Ft. Pierce.

He is good on Yanmars. I don't know about Cummins. If not he should be able to point you to one.

Brian Stetler did a survey for us before we bought Hobo. I'd use him again.

I used Peter A. Muir of Allied Marine Consultants. http://www.alliedmarinesurveyors.com , used him twice and was very happy. He recommended Tim Caruso for the engine and again I was very happy with his work.

I used Peter A. Muir of Allied Marine Consultants for the Survey and Tim Caruso for the engine when buying our KK 48. No hesitation in recommending the both.
