Looking for Surveyor and Carpenter in the Chesapeake area
We are pretty far along in our search for phase 3 of our unexcused absence (a 40-ish foot, old-school trawler), and will hopefully need the services of both a "buyer's" surveyor, and then maybe a good carpenter, somewhere along the Annapolis / Deltaville / Norfolk / Great Bridge / Chesapeake axis.
For the surveyor, we are looking for someone to really dig into the boat's systems and give us candid recommendations, not just a bank or insurance surveyor.
For the carpenter, we are looking for (and are willing to pay for) high quality work. The biggest questions, if you all have any recommendations, are; did they do the work in the time frame promised, and within at least some semblance of the estimated price?
While I am a newly registered user to TF, I have been lurking for months and have come to respect and value your opinions very much. So thank you in advance!
