I have been in and about boats all my life-starting by creating a rig in our dinghy and sailing up and down the shore at Studland Bay.(Black and white photo attached)

I graduated into racing dinghies when my father built my YW (now International ) Cadet.

I then progressed to Fireflies and National 12 racing dinghies. My second wooden glued clinker National 12 being the first boat that I built.

Inevitably I went into cruiser racing and from a bare hull built an Anstey Yachts Trapper 28.

I then then fulfilled my ambition and built from scratch my current yacht which is a Bruce Farr Half Tonner  (Website “Histoire des Halfs Reference “Northern Dancer”). (Photo Northern Dancer)

I have been a Marine Surveyor since 2004 being a member of IIMS as well as being an Associate Member of the Academy of Experts being included in the UK Register of Expert Witnesses.

I deal with RCD Compliance being the UK arm of a  Dutch Certifying Authority.

I also undertake Insurance Investigations as well as damage surveys.

I am particularly interested in Classic Yachts and restorations.

My previous life in the Legal Profession  (www. caselaw.solutions) enables me to give a service in respect of Marine Legal problems.

My work takes me all over Europe, North Mediterranean and Scandinavia.
