Can anyone here recommend a surveyor or two?
chuckle....kinda like the car salesman saying he would be happy to have have a mechanic look her over for you before you buy to ascertain if there are any issues.........
That said people in the business like brokers would know more about which is the best surveyer for a particular type of vessel so are a valuable resource. What you might do is contact a different broker to see what surveyer they would recomend.
