I have been surveying wooden boats for 25 years, my experience as a boat builder building and restoring wooden boats allows me to provide an accurate and realistic assessment of all forms of wooden boat construction.

For anyone considering buying a boat understanding her true condition prior to purchase is essential. Insurance companies will require an out of water survey before providing cover and will demand that your boat is re-surveyed at 5 to 8 yearly intervals, (depending on the company).

I can provide survey reports for insurance, damage assessment, and pre-purchase purposes.
