Since the beginning of mankind, we have been surrounded by water. We find it soothing, peaceful, serene. That's why many of us seek a life on the water.


I understand that desire. I am a lifelong boater, diver, and angler. I, too, spend as much time as I can on the water.

As a marine surveyor I can offer a client insights and observations of your boat, or the boat you are considering, that you may not see yourself. I bring many years of experience conducting investigations, documenting and collecting evidence. 

A boat can be a place to relax or a place to make a living. It can also be a large investment. A thorough survey, well documented, can not just uncover inadequate or damaged systems and construction, it can save you money down the road in repair costs as well as prevent a serious loss. My reports have been widely accepted by insurance carriers and lending institutions.
