Survey for a 50ft Samson ketch

Survey for a 50ft Samson ketch

I'm very close to making an offer on a nice looking Sampson 50' ketch but don't know much about FC boats. I could really use a good architect/surveyor in California to help me determine if the boat is as sound as she looks. Can you recommend someone or tell me how to find someone with good knowledge of ferro-cement construction?


Hi Charles, sorry but I only know of one surveyor that I could recommend as knowledgable enough on the subject in the USA, and he is not in California he is in Boston. I will not publish his details without conferring with him first, but would be happy to pass on your request if you contact me direct. Regards
