With an academic background in naval architecture, specialising in small craft design and construction techniques coupled with nigh on a decade delivering yachts, power and sail, mono and multihulls, throughout Europe, the North Atlantic and the Pacific covering over 145,000nm.
I fully understand the rigours, which a yacht must be able to endure during its life.In my capacity as a delivery skipper I have had to assess the seaworthiness of each and every vessel with respect to the intended voyage.From this background it was a natural progression to move into surveying full time, offering the knowledge I have gained over the years to the sailing community at large.
Not content to rest on my laurels I have rounded my knowledge by attaining a Diploma in Small Craft Surveying through the IIMS, an organisation of which I remain a member.I offer a comprehensive service with in depth reports detailing all issues that arise from the survey. These reports can be presented in a technical or non-technical format, as per the clients&rsquo wishes.
