I used Jan DeGroot, who has been around Taiwanese boats since they began importing them. He has also spent time there supervising builds for clients. I was happy with his survey of my PT38

He wrote an article several years ago on Taiwanese trawlers. He's been around "forever". I used Peter Larkins. Very knowledgeable. But he's a negative "Nellie".

Either of the above although I haven't seen Jan in a while and wonder if he can still get into tight spaces.

Surveyors in B.C.

I used Ken Rorison about 35 years ago on a sail boat and Tim Micgiveny on a trawler about 14 years ago both are excellent.

An interesting article on Surveyor's responsibility is below.
