Good afternoon Scott I just have to write to say how overwhelmed I was and am with the extremely professional and personal attention you gave to me and my project on my boat from June 17 to date. Without your help, the boat would not be in the condition it is now. All of your contacts were second to none and all work was carried out superbly. If ever you wish to use my name as an extremely happy client, please do so and I am also happy to talk to any of your clients to overwhelmingly confirm everything I have just said and more. Thank you once again and I look forward to continue to be a client of yours for many years to come. Kind Regards Cheryl Macnaught Maritimo M60

Hi Scott;


Thank you for compiling this report for us on Yumigee. It's unfortunate that she had some structural issues, but that is, after all, what we engaged you to discover. You no doubt saved us a considerable sum of money in rectifications had we proceeded.


You should by now have received payment for your inspection and report. If not, please don't hesitate to contact me.


Ursula and I are looking at another vessel in Southport this afternoon. If she appears to be suitable, I'll get back to you so that we can arrange an inspection.


Thanks again, Scott.



Yours faithfully,


Peter Fox

To Whom it may concern


I have engaged Scott on two separate occasions for pre-purchase surveys, initially for a Jeanneau 42 and subsequently for the yacht I now own, a Beneteau first 47.7.

On both occasions he has been courteous to all parties involved, professional and meticulous in his observation and uses up to date techniques and equipment including thermal imaging, moisture meters etc.


I have previously been involved with boatbuilding companies including seafarer, Haines hunter, Riviera, Lightwave yachts and have experience with a huge variety of techniques and materials. I would honestly say that “I know boats”. Having said that Scott made a number of observations that I would not have otherwise been aware of, and in the case of the first survey, very significant issues and potential costs.


After the purchase of my Beneteau, he has twice come to my aid with after service help and advice  and done so willingly.  Throughout the process Scott has had a genuine interest in making sure that my yacht was seaworthy and meets all legal requirements.  


I would highly recommend that Scott be engaged in any pre-purchase inspection


Kind Regards, happy and safe sailing

Hi Scott,

Just a quick note to express my gratitude for the way you handled the survey of, what is now, my Lagoon 421. It gave me great comfort that your inspection was so expansive and meticulous. The detail supplied in the subsequent written report was not only informative for me, but also extremely helpful when dealing with sub-contractors to fix the faults you had identified. This purchase was a great leap into a different world for me, and your expertise helped settle some very ragged nerves.


Thanks again.
