Marine Services

It all started as a way to help customers better understand their boat. With the marine industry evolving faster than ever there is always something new to learn.

MISSION & HISTORY.

As a qualified member of SAMS (Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors) and a life long boater, I am able to offer you an incredible wealth of knowledge during your boat buying process.

The market is flooded with tons of fly-by-night operations and unscrupulous surveyors. Make sure that you hire a qualified surveyor who is a member of SAMS or NAMS. Both organizations have a strict code of ethics and are the only internationally recognized organization. There are a few other "professional" organizations but they are not accepted by lenders or insurance companies.

I believe in complete transparency and will not accept any job that I have a personal connection to. My rates are clearly displayed on this site and my travel time is included within my set range. I will happily provide "after inspection" support and review the report with any interested parties. Most of my work comes from referrals and recommendations.

CERTIFICATIONS.

These are a few of the major certifications I posses. I'm always looking to expand my knowledge with on-the-job training, seminars, expos, trade conferences, and courses. In addition to the below certifications, I posses a U.S.C.G. 25 Ton Near Coastal License with Towing Endorsement.
