"In Boating News Today"Boat Buyer Chooses the Wrong Marine Surveyor!!!!

About Us

Pre-Purchase Surveys

image14

If your a buyer with either many years of  experience to your first purchase, I am glad to assist your every question and explain why my nearly 40 years of experience in surveying makes all the world of difference in the quality of survey findings and how a new surveyor may very likely miss many things that only Experience can find and uncover.  This is the most detailed of inspections and will take a day or more aboard plus additional day to compile the report.

Insurance Condition Valuation or Loan Appraisal Surveys

If you have owned your vessel for awhile and get the request from your Underwriter agent that you need an "INSURANCE CONDITION & VALUATION SURVEY" This is an inspection of the vessel from a more basic view and is used to uncover safety issues that you may not be aware of at a reduced price.  It is compiled with SAFETY in mind for your vessel and your family aboard. 

Engine Evaluations, Trial Run, Compression Testing & Oil Sample Analysis

I conduct gasoline engine surveys of all types with trial run testing, compression testing and oil sample analysis to determine the conditions of inboards and outboards.


Diesel engines are also inspected externally and with oil analysis when a Diesel Specialist is not aboard in conjunction with most buyers surveys
