Dan was great to work with and saved me from purchasing a boat that could have turned out to be a real nightmare! I had already checked out the boat I wanted to purchase but did not notice areas where the cabin had shifted causing gaps in the bulkheads. Something happened to this boat and Dan was able to identify the issue and immediately brought it to my attention. Dan seems to enjoy the forensic investigation aspect of his work and really knows the anatomy of a vessel. He is professional with a warm personality, and I felt like he sincerely had my back. I highly recommend Cole Marine Surveyors!
