+2 Smart !
Thanks for posting that.

Yep... I did the same. The yard will have them. I just payed for them regardless of if we ended up buying it or not.

Bridgeton Boatworks is a great yard, easy approach, and new lift slip. Rob is top notch, none better. Sellers generally hate him, buyers love him. We have used him on both sides and he is fair and honest. You are in good hands. We are in the area almost every weekend, if you need anything, even a ride to the airport, let us know....we can probably help.

Bessib - Thank you. It is encouraging to hear that I choose the right surveyor. I have heard nothing but the best about him. Thanks for the offer of a ride. I actually live in Trent Woods, but work in Philadelphia. Long story, maybe I can tell you about it sometime in the future over a cocktail. I will be in NC full time next April when I retire.
