Passionate Services
for Boats & boaters

In more than 25 Years as a Skipper, DIY Troubleshooter and Hobby-Boatbuilder, I have developed not only a broad knowledge Base but also a true Passion for Boats, as I certainly spent many of my happiest Moments on them. Thus, I understand my professional Role not just as a “technical” Inspector but merely as a Coach who wants to share this Passion with YOU.
