As my work continues to involve more thermal imaging and ultrasound inspections, I have started a new website to provide information on these services. 

The goal at NDT YACHT is to solve problems using non destructive testing while working with boat owners, builders, boatyards, and insurance companies.

Trawler Fest Rivera Beach, FL

Once again I am happy to announce I will be part of the boat buyer's program at Trawler Fest in Rivera Beach, FL.

I am looking forward to teaming up with yacht designer Stephen Seaton  on a seminar about buying and building custom yachts. We will cover what you will need to know about having a custom boat designed and built. We will also cover the purchasing of a used custom boat, most of which are one off built boats. We will mostly cover metal which is the most common in custom built trawler materials, but will also touch on wood and fiberglass.


On a recent trip to Trinidad for a survey I was pleasantly surprised with the services available for the boat owner there. This is not the Caribbean Island you might be used to. You will not find an island crowded with tourists or your typical anchorages. In Chaguaramas you will find an assortment of boat yards and chandleries. My survey was at Peake Yacht Services where I found the staff to be very helpful. This yard is capable of repairs on any type of yacht. If you find yourself in Trinidad make sure you hire Jesse James as your taxi driver. Jesse is a true friend to the cruiser and he and his drivers will take good care of you.
