I would like to recommend John Zahn / All States Marine Surveyors,
This was my first time purchasing a pre-owned boat out of state, and also my first time having a boat surveyed. I had a similar experience a couple of years ago. I had bought a car (bmw-m3) listed on eBay, it was out of state when I received the car, the engine was damaged and had to be replaced, thank god it was a warranty issue! after this experience there was no-doubt that I needed to have a survey on the boat I was buying.
After john surveyed the boat he contacted me and discussed what he had found wrong with the boat (which was very minor issues) and then he sent me a very detailed report with pictures. John is a very detailed, serious, and straight forward kind of guy, his priority is to uncover any problems regarding the vessel you are wanting to buy.
I am very happy with my boat.  Thank you john!!!

John, thank you very much for a great job on both surveys and I will pass on your number to anyone who needs a survey


Thanks again

Thanks for the report.
 Your professionalism and dedication to the task at hand is second to none!
 I will be keeping the boat at  Piermont NY, about 3 miles south of the Tappan Zee Bridge, .
 If your in the neighborhood, please stop by.  I owe you a beer!
                                                                    Please take care   Dave Jones

Nice Survey!!!

Dear John,

Thank you for the work you did for me. I was much relieved with your positive report.  What work do you recommend be done first? ANY thing you could recommend I would appreciate.

Thank you, John, for the professional way you did this survey for me.

Sincerely yours, Tom

The Survey looks great. 
 I will certainly recommend your services to others.

Dear John:
Thank you for your professionalism in performing the survey and your promptness in sending the survey.  Linda & I enjoyed speaking with you, and learned a great deal about the boat as well as the many other items we discussed.  You are a wealth of information and we look forward to seeing you on the water.

Hi John,
     I've decided to purchase the boat as ********** has offered to repair everything on the list (Including installing new manifolds and risers!). Thanks again for your expert assistance as I feel I know quite a bit more about the boat and will now hopefully be getting a much better and more reliable one, once the issues you uncovered are addressed.
Have a great weekend!

Your thoroughness, extensive knowledge and attention to detail went far beyond my expectations.  Your comprehensive written survey was more than complete, and the pictures clear and informative.  It's nice to feel I will find no surprises when I pick up the boat. 

Money well spent.

Feel free to use me as a reference.      Jeff F
