    Default Boat inspector....

    Greetings everyone....my sister is looking at a boat in the Edwardsburg, Michigan area. She & I are from NY. Does anyone know of a boat inspector in that vicinity that can do a pre-purchase inspection? Thank you.

    Boat surveyors come in many sorts. Is this is a glass motor boat or a wooden sail boat or what? And how big?

    If she's a little boat and you can just write a check, maybe you'd buy sight-unseen with someone else's word that you have a full description but I wouldn't.

    Here are some links to get you started.......
    If you want to do your own research use yellow pages/google to find marinas/boatyards in the area and cold call them and ask for a recommendation for a marine surveyor for a (Pick One of each: steel/wood/fiberglass/ferrocement ..... tiny/med/big/giant ... commercial/recrational . . . power/sail/auxilary/row) craft.

    It can work:
    A friend in New York bought a boat in France using a surveyor from England and now 9 years, a circumnavigation of North and South America, and 1000 SailBlog posts later, the purchase seems to have been a good one.

    This is the first lesson ye should learn: There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, it doesn't behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us.

    THANK YOU very much for your help and ideas....it is a 21' Century fiberglass (hate to say) boat. I was not sure if they had wood encapsulated into the stringers & floor on those boats.
