Marine Surveyor

Postby timp4411 » Wed Aug 28, 2013 9:07 pm

Hi All.

I believe I am getting close to closing on a 3860 and need to line up a surveyor or two located around Baltimore.

Kent Island area more specifically.

I will need a good marine surveyor and perhaps a good mechanical/engine surveyor too.

Any suggestions or experience with surveyors in that area or nearby (Baltimore) ?

Thanks !

I used Karen at http://www.anchormarineinc.net/
I bought my regal from a broker on Kent Island. Overall she did a good job and this was my first boat so I leaned heavily on her report. My only complaint was that I wish she would have noticed the cockpit canvas. When I bought it the canvas was pretty much dry rotted but she didn't get to see it because the broker had the camper top on and I didn't know any better. Lesson learned.

Randy seems to have a lot of credentials and experience, plus he right there in Stevensville.

I'll see if he is on the "Boat/US" list too, that's always a plus.

Thanks !

He found some very specific things that may have been difficult for someone unfamiliar with the engines and drive to know about. It was worth the extra investment if the general surveyor is not familiar with your set up.

I've owned 2 3860's a 2002 and a 2006. Very nice boat. I still have a 2008 4460 listed with AM PM in Pasadena, MD, even nicer. Always stored inside and near perfect. Just in case your 3860 doesn't work out. In any event I have had almost no issues with the2 3860's or the 4460.


Hi Dcookie.

Thanks for the info. Why are you selling the 4460 ?

I agree they are nice boats... eye catchers for sure.

What was your experience with fuel consumption with your 3860 ? Did it make you tighten up when you re-fueled ?

I have employed Randy Renn (Surveyor) who also knows engines. He has already taken oil samples and sent to the lab, and said the engines seem to be great. Of course, a sea trial may show more info and that will be this coming week.

He was very impressed with the condition of the boat and said "it was as clean as a new condo" . He did not find anything of concern.... yet.

Regards.
