72' Hatteras

July 2017

I hired Capt. Trip to do a survey for a Hatteras I purchased.  I found Capt. Trip knowledgeable and reliable. We had a mechanical issue during the sea trial. He knew what was wrong and fixed the boat for us to return to the port safely. There were several issues that needed to be addressed to bring my Hatteras up to par. The survey helped a great deal with negotiating the price and knowing what repairs I would be facing. My survey was well organized and clearly noted all the issues. I transported my Hatteras to San Diego, where I live, for the repair work to be done.  I was impressed by the service and will use Capt. Trip for any future surveys.

"Excellent work! The level of detail in the survey was impressive. The additional tips and insights you offered during the survey and sea trial were extremely helpful and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend your services to anyone. If you want to know everything about that boat you are purchasing, have Trip look it over." Jim H.

“When Hurricane Frances sank our Trawler, we didn't think we could continue our life long dream of cruising the coasts for our retirement. Thanks to your detailed work and prompt service, our insurance company and the repairmen knew just what we needed. Now we are back at sea. Next time we need a boat survey we will call you."


Many Thanks,

Mary and Thomas Nash

"Captain Trip, your report was the best and most thorough we have seen in our 30 years of boating.  We have had marine surveys/ boat surveys from coast to coast. Thank You!"
