St Augustine Surveyor Needed

I am looking at a Chinese built trawler in the St.Augustine area and would appreciate recommendations. An engine surveyor for a 330 Cummins would be nice to know also.

Thanks

I used Bill Gladding 904. 945. 9243. He spent nine hours on my Krogen 42, which included the sea trial on Friday, sent 200 pictures on Saturday, and final report on Sunday. Very knowledgeable and thorough. He has a website

Sounds like my kind of a guy unless he charges by the hour...

Bill surveyed our Defever and I would strongly recommend him as well.

I will third a recommendation for Bill, knowledgeable, thorough and reasonable.

I worked with him when he was building lobster boats in Key West with his Uncle, the two of them know boats inside out.

Good Before and After

I Also recommend Bill. Good both before for the survey and after the sale to help learn the systems the boat has.
