Hi All,

 

Good news, just got our purchase offer accepted on a 2006 Chap. 290, so it looks like I'll be joining the family!   The boat is in Pensacola & I will be traveling there to inspect it & have a survey performed.  Can anyone recommend a good Pensacola area Surveyor ASAP?!?!  I have no ties to that area at all...   Thanks in advance!

If all else fails, you can use certified, endorsed surveyors found on the BoatUS page.  That is what I did with my out of state purchase:

Good luck!  Hope she works out for you.

Only Chaparral Dealer I know of in that area is Sunrise Marine. They may have a survey service, I don't know. It's in Mary Esther, FL about 45 mins from P'Cola

Thanks all.  Used the link and picked out a surveyor that sounded like he knew what he was doing.  Had a nice conversation.  All set for the survey and sea trial next Wednesday.  Signed contract and deposit sent.  Hooray.  Looking forward to having the boat before the end of the month!  Thanks for all the advice!
