Surveyor in Saint Petersburg

We are long time sailing cruisers thinking of going to the dark side and get a trawler :-) Anyone have a recommendation for a good surveyor in the Saint Petersburg Fl area?

Thx

Thanks,

Does he also do a through engine check or is there a second engine surveyor? I'm used to sailboats with their smaller single engines, not a trawler with bigger ones. Not to mention the only means of propulsion.

He does not do an invasive engine check. He looks for leaks, movement of the coupling and does a full throttle overheat test. I had a mechanic scheduled for the sea trial but he did not show up. Can't recommend him, therefor.

You might ask Rick about a engine surveyor.
