Extremely thorough and detailed surveyor

We were given numbers for a few surveyors in the area and speaking to all of them, we instantly knew Chris would be the surveyor for us, very down to earth and genuine. We couldn't make the surveyor due to work commitments so we left him to it and also asked him to send some pics of the boat in the cradle which he did. He turned the survey around in no time at all and we received an email version followed up by a paper copy later, the report was extremely thorough and detailed. We were so happy that we've already sent others his way.

I don't normally leave reviews unless I'm really pleased with a service, I'm a big believer in giving credit where it's due, 5 stars from us.

I couldn’t have chosen a better surveyor

Chris put me at ease from the start. To me this was important, I am a foreign female, with little sailing experience. I felt vulnerable, but Chris really took his time explaining stuff and advising me on how to handle negotiating. He went above and beyond. As it turns out, before becoming a surveyor, he was a marine engine engineer. I figure he must have known a thing or two, and he has certainly given me some pretty important advice. His report was pretty thorough and impressive. Everyone who read it was well impressed. Lots of photos, explanations and a lot of “to do” jobs. I couldn’t have chosen a better surveyor.
