There should be others closer to N-Port but Marine Safety Consultants in Fairhaven are very good.

Capt. William "Bill" Brindamour did my survey last year.
Very thorough and knowledgeable, would definitely go to him again.

Default Avoid Rob Scanlan

Before I bought my Robalo 2003 20' center console, I had Rob Scanlan survey the boat and got the green light to buy it. Two seasons later, I am paying the price for his shoddy work. My boat sank because two through holes that were designed to be above the water line had sunk below the water line.

The evidence was clear enough at the time of his inspection. The bottom paint had been repainted and now covered the boot stripe at the aft end of the boat. The boat had apparently taken on weight in the aft end and was sitting lower in the water. Rob's report had photos that show the repainting, but he did not catch it. Two seasons later, the hoses rotted out, water came in through the underwater through hulls, and I lost my boat.

I contacted Rob asking for a refund of his fee plus compensation for my time to find a new boat and sales tax for a new purchase, but he flatly refused. (He goes by R.T. SCANLAN, CMS/MMS/ACMS)

x2,the two above you were scammed by the Scam-man.He looks like Ensign Friggin Parker walking around in the clown suit.

I had Rob Scanlon do my boat and even recommended him to a friend who also employed him, he's just OK. He's a lot more flash than substance. My boat had had serious modifications done where complete bulkheads were removed and he mentioned none of it.

Thumbs down

I met Scamman last summer at a local marina. The way the guy talked you would think he invented the ocean. I have more coffee time than he has sea time, but he never shut up long enough to figure that out. What a tool.

Good for an insurance survey when you need a vessel to shine,not so much when you need a comprehensive and critical assessment of a boat purchase.

Just by your response alone, I would stay away from you.
