Welcome to the forum! Can't help you with a surveyor.


I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....

Welcome aboard! Give Butch Pliski a call. Yacht Surveyors | Pliske Yacht Surveys | Fort Lauderdale
He and his sons really know their stuff. I've used them many times and I've know Butch for forty years or so.

We used Brian Stetler for a boat we walked away from. I flew in from Seattle the day before he did the survey and got a good look at a boat (). After the survey we talked about his findings, which confirmed what I saw. I told him we were walking away and didn't need the report. He discounted the cost of the survey appropriately.

We had our current Nordic Tug surveyed in Ft. Lauderdale. We were very pleased with Ed Rowe with Ed Rowe & Associates, Inc. out of Vero Beach. Ed came highly recommended and we pass along the same sentiment. He was there early, was very thorough (crawled into just about every nook and cranny), spent a lot of time on the boat and found time to discuss results with us after the survey and before he drafted his report.
