We are located in New Orleans, LA., USA, and regularly service customers in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. We are available to travel to any of the US States and International locations.

If you need a survey on a commercial vessel, cargo, or asset, please click the Commercial Vessels and Cargo link.

If you need a survey on a recreational vessel or asset, please click the Yachts and Recreational Vessels link.

In addition to typical marine surveying services we perform audio gauging, also known as ultrasonic thickness measurement. Our equipment allows us to read through paint. Our reports are regularly used to satisfy OCIMF vetting requirements for towing vessel and tank barges, ABS and other class societies, 30-year section modulus calculations for tank barges, and for general maintenance and repair purposes.

For recreational vessel owners, in addition to surveying services, we also provide the following services: sailing lessons, boat handling lessons, deliveries, familiarizing new owners with on board systems and equipment, preparation for long distance cruising and passages, hurricane and storm mooring preparation, and help with just about any of your boating related questions or concerns. At heart, we are sailors, fishermen, divers, cruisers, and it is our interest to be helpful to fellow boaters.
