About Us

I have been a life long boater who grew up on the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland. My family and I were on the water just about every weekend. I started working on engines at a very early age. Beginning with being a “human jack” holding outdrives in the air long enough for my father to fix what he needed to fix, to gradually moving up to rebuilding and diagnosing problems by myself. Boating has been a passion of mine since an early age. I guess you could say it’s in my blood; my grandfather during WWII built warships at the famous Bethlehem steel located in Baltimore, Maryland for 35 years. Passing on that knowledge of ship construction and ship propulsion.

I graduated from Maryland’s Salisbury University with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. I was excited and eager to get out in the field and begin working as soon as possible. After some thought I decided to change my path and transition to the surveying industry. Upon starting my business my focus has been transparency and value for the customer. I am here for your needs; I observe the good and the bad and pride myself on being as thorough and detailed as possible. I encourage buyers to attend pre-purchase surveys and ask whatever they feel necessary.
