A Little About Us

Richard and Lauren operate their family business from the Kingston, Ontario area. Kingston is quite central to Eastern Ontario. Richard leaves Kingston and travels to Toronto, Pembroke, Gatineau, Montreal and all points in between. If you need a boat surveyed for your bank, insurance company, marina or personal satisfaction, he will be there.
You will receive your report by email the following evening. If it’s not going to happen we will let you know and make a firm commitment for delivery as soon as circumstances allow. By the end of the spring launch we sometimes get a day or two behind. We do our best always.
