If your going to be regularly boat shopping, making contact with one STRONG surveyor should be at the top of your list of things to do. If you go over to the Baylinerownersclub.org site and post this question you'll get many answers quickly as there's many owners, there including one fellow named Neil who owns a Boatyard in Alameda.

This is the guy I used in Oakley on my boat. He is a real buyer's advocate and some brokers don't like becuase he is on the buyer's side:

We used Mr. Schmidt here in Oakley [small world] as well. Albeit on a smaller boat, and we thought he was very professional, and answered my questions, during, and after the survey. As "greenhorns" we were glad to have had someone who could break it all down so I could understand it.

Boat survey: Kent Parker, Napa. 707-252-9383

Engine survey: List Marine, Sausalito. 415-332-5478

Their reputation is well known in the Bay Area. I would use them again!

I've got a call into List marine and an email. Apparently they like email better than telephone.
I also have an appointment with Mr Parker. My first call was to Brendan but Kent answered the phone and therefore got my business.
If I don't hear from list, I will need to start calling elsewhere as time is of the essence.
Thanks for the help everyone.

List is a professional business. Call their shop on business hours. Jessica usually is the first you will speak to. Good Luck!

If you are considering a NT, make sure you go to SENTOA.org and join the list server.

PS: I may have already given you this advice...

No one answers their phones at any of these places. I left messages for all of them. I left emails at Chucks. I guess I expected more (like a person to answer the phone during business hours), but I'm unfamiliar with the industry.
