Default Need a surveyor in the Detroit area....

I am looking to get a second opinion on some structure issues (stingers, transom, hull etc...)

Anyone in the Detroit area that you guys would recommend?

Thanks

Yeah, John Trost of John Trost & Associates is excellent...

I've worked with him for many years when I had my dive/salvage/repair business...

He's a big time blow boater, but knows all boats inside and out and he is well respected...a very, very personalable guy..

He also does alot of work for the ins. companies and you need a relationship with a guy like that to get through any claims problems...

I don't have his phone# with me at the moment, but I will post and PM you with same...

Give Dennis Biel a call @ 586-463-5526. He is a very good surveyor and he does a lot of performance boats.
