You could give the famous Tony Athens (boatdiesel.com guru and prolific writer) a call up in Oxnard.

If you don't think the boat will get a good survey report (for insurance acceptance too) after your own initial inspections, don't waste your time expecting a surveyor give a thumbs up. Read boat buying and surveyor threads from a month or two ago to get some thoughts on what to look for on your own.

Here is a recommendation that Tony made on boatdiesel a year or so ago.

David

Steve,


Since its been 5 days since your post w/ NO RESPONSE, Ill offer AAA Marine services.. 100% guy that is the best around, BUT he is 130 miles North in Ventura, County.. Hell go yo SD, but it will cost more(probably $1500-ish for the engine survey down there).. He knows it all, trust me on that and will tell it like it is..

Call him at 805 3009591......."Vaughan Catlett"..No one better around..

Tony
