Karen, I do truly appreciate your abilities and extra care in my marine survey. I've composed some text you're welcome to use on your materials, and I'm happy to be a reference for other customers.
I am very pleased that I used Karen Alt for my pre-purchase marine survey. From the very first phone call she provided invaluable advice and brought clarity and order to the entire process. She capably directed the crew during sea trials and the marina staff during haul-out. She leveraged several reference resources that informed her inspection and valuation of the vessel. Her inspection was thorough, her final report was comprehensive, well organized, and easy to understand. Her survey put me in a much stronger position to negotiate with the owner and more importantly, understand whether this was the right boat for me. In the end I was a far more educated and confident boat buyer. I will be using her services again soon.
Laura and I wish to that you for the excellent and thorough survey you performed on Pegasys, a 2000 Catalina 36 Mark II, for us this past November. Below you will find our recommendation for you to use as reference. Let me know if you need any changes to the recommendation.
In November 2019, we hired Karen Wiley Alt, primary surveyor with Anchor Marine Survey LLC, to perform a condition and value survey on a 2000 Catalina 36 Mark II. We found Karen to be a very thorough, competent and experienced surveyor. While professional, Karen is friendly and outgoing providing us with details on the operation of the boat's systems, and a complete understanding of condition of the vessel. Her seventeen page report detailed the current state and value of the vessel, which made our purchase of the boat a smooth process including negotiation of price, acquiring a loan, and boat insurance. We would certainly recommend Karen to anyone in need of a boat survey.
