We live in Washington state and found our boat in Texas. We made an offer contingent on inspection. (Truth be told, I didn't want to get an inspection, but my wife put her foot down.... good job honey!)
I made contact with John and spoke with him for about 10 minutes and decided to hire Southern Marine Surveying to execute the survey. I could not be happier now that we have the completed survey. There was nothing sizable to report, but the peace of mind I have knowing a professional validated what I was told over the phone, makes me sleep much better.
John's report was thorough, well documented, with lots of pictures and recommendations. John was diamonds to deal with, prompt in responding and completing the survey, getting it done on a weekend so we could have the boat shipped immediately.
I strongly recommend John and Southern Marine Surveying for their professionalism and trustworthy service.
Great service! Reliable, honest, dependable and on time.
Very friendly and attentive. Real knowledgeable. Flexible with scheduling and exceeded expectations. Would definitely recommend
John was punctual and professional. The survey turned out great and I was able to barter a better deal for the boat I bought.
Saved myself a headache by hiring John! I won't purchase another pre-owned boat without a surveyor. He kept me from purchasing a disaster.
