I have had a life-long experience with boats, and built a 45 ft. fiberglass ketch, adhering to ABYCÂ® (American Boat and Yacht Council) Standards. I have been an Accredited Marine Surveyor (AMS #767) with the Society of Accredited Marine SurveyorsÂ® (SAMSÂ®) since 2003. Certified, Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). I learned surveying by working with and being mentored by a founding member of SAMS for several years.I have experience with most types of recreational watercraft in an area with a large and diverse population of boats and yachts. My aim is to provide meticulous and conscientious attention to detail in the service of my clients who are buyers or owners. I do not work for sellers.
