    I am a layman but one well educated on the subject. You're also a layman on this subject. I said up front I don't know the specifics of the boat but the vast majority of the time a surveyor would be able to handle this boat, and, if not, they'll indicate the need for more. We're not talking about trying to reach some goals, not trying to fit under 24 meters or 500 Tons or anything else, just get a 100' done in a manner that gets the owner US documentation. 100' is the easiest size one could have for this task. $5000 could be fair depending on the boat. We've given Bill a couple of surveyors to talk to but he's already had one say they could do the job.

    The boat is a real 100’ older Broward. Not a stretch.

    And it looks like I’ll be using ABS to do the measurements and the price is the price. I’ll let you know the exact price once it’s done.

    Not much in the way of choices.

    Thanks everyone.

    You are the one that brought in off topic details like 24 meters rules or 500 grt limits, etc, all that extra noise came from you.

    As far as me being a layman like you, having worked on tonnage calculations for yachts in my Naval Architect career would certainly put me beyond your layman status. Some easy, some a challenge, up to 130’ .

    Your assumption that you are well educated on the topic doesn’t match the smoke you are blowing when you make comments like “100’ is the easiest size”, complete bs especially when you didn’t even know the specifics to the boat. Those types of generalizations are the opposite of good information.

    The solution found by the OP is the right one, regardless of the noise.

    He stated that it should be an easy one to get the calculations on provided it was a straight forward boat. Being a Broward it is very straightforward. I used to run several of those old Browards. Some stretched, some not. From my experience of the ones I've run, it should come in at 199 GRT or fairly close to that.
