Chuck34...You are in luck!
We just had the survey completed on a boat that we are purchasing in ME. This fellow is so good, we had him flown from MD. He is in Solomons. His name is Mike Previti, owner of Previti Marine Surveyor and Consulting, Inc. He can be reached at 410-326-0866.
I came upon Mike through a gentleman I met working with the folks at Zimmermann Marine through their buyers program. Excellent program and folks. The gentleman the I have been working with is Haywood May. He provided me several names of surveyors. I asked each of them to provide me an example of their work (completed survey findings and recommendations) and Mike's blew the others away. The extent of detail was incredible. I understand that Mike is probably one of the top 3 on the east coast. a No "BS" guy.
I suggest you give him a call and see what you think...he is very busy, be forewarned. Feel free to PM me with any questions.
