Richard, You rock. Lorna Ferguson
“After five forever.”
Dear Mr. Trainor:
Thank you for your assistance purchasing our new Prowler. You are by far the most knowledgeable surveyor we have ever dealt with. It has been a pleasure.
Richard is recommended by Toy Storage boat transport. He has surveyed many boats at our storage facility, always with customer satisfaction.

We have retained Mr Trainor’s services over several years on both new
builds and restoration projects , due to his extensive knowledge and
When it comes to quality work and advanced construction techniques , Richard’s
experience and qualifications are beyond vast majority of average surveyors. His
personality and manners are another bonus when dealing with such a valuable
and cherished posession as your boat.
All the marinas I asked for a recommendation said you were the best.

…to hire or not to hire a professional Surveyor…?
I would like to share a couple of thoughts about the role of our surveyor Richard
Trainor. We had been shopping for a yacht for some time and had visited many before
making a short list but I would say this: “Never ever complete any transaction
unless you order a complete survey of your potential yacht by a qualified
Like some at the outset, I was not sure if I should invest a bit more money to get
it done. However, our surveyor was working for us! He discovered weaknesses, some
major some minor, some even hidden, that I would never had seen even though I
consider myself a seasoned boater.
Further to this, the contents of the survey made it possible for me to modify the
potential sale agreements by incorporating some of the elements that were found to
be deficient. How do I know if a shaft has been bent and partially repaired, or the
compression is low, the presence of osmosis, or the problem of oil in the
after-coolers, … what if that yacht you want does not pass a survey: would you
invest considerable sums it it? Would you buy a house without doing an inspection?
In that light, I wholeheartedly recommend Richard Trainor for his professional
background, his knowledge of boating and of boating maintenance and for his
professional attitude towards us, the brokers, the buyers and the sellers.

Our marina recommended you as the best diesel engine guy in Ontario.
Thank you for your help with our lawsuit to get our engine replaced by our insurance. We couldn’t have beaten their surveyor without your marine engineering expertise. All the best.
Hello Mr. Trainor:
We hired you because you are the only surveyor who lives within a hundred miles of Kingston. Both the marina and the broker said you were the best. I know now why.
Thanks for your help.
