Any recommendations for a local surveyor? My insurance company said I need to get an out of water survey done for a "valuation survey".

Has anyone else had to do this?

Thanks
Ed

Mine was 10 years old when they made me get one



Sorry to hear that - glad it didn't happen to us.



It's actually a good thing. Otherwise, they could be insuring boats that are worth nothing, and paying out claims on those boats. It helps prevent fraud, which increases rates.



I am sure in might have an impact if everyone required it.

Just a thought???
If you want someone to survey a boat for insurance purposes, I suggest you hire a lazy moron that just wants a pay check. LOL

Yes, exactly, I'm insured through NBOA. I guess it's time to shop around, I really don't want to spend a grand!

Thank you for the recommendations.

Are you guys insured through NBOA?
They contacted me recently asking for an out of the water insurance survey.
I provided them with a pre-purchase survey when I first bought the boat in December of 2016.
Despite having that survey, they wanted another one. Unreal! I went back and forth with them and they finally agreed to just continue to accept the December 2016 survey but told me I would have to have an insurance survey done before that one is 5 years old, and every 5 years after that.
They had the best price when I was shopping for insurance 2 years ago. Now I think I understand why.
As long as Iím going to have to pay for a survey in 2021, I think Iím going call my old broker, Alan Mott Agency, and ask them to shop around for a new carrier once I get it done. Hopefully they can find one that wonít want a survey every 5 years.
