Services We Provide
We perform surveys on sportfishing vessels, commercial fishing vessels including steel hull trawl boats, cruisers and motor yachts and sailboats.
We perform inspections for the Corps of Engineers and USCG as well.
Pre-Purchase Marine Survey

This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel. Condition and overall operation of the vessel should be examined. This covers structural integrity, electrical systems, the propulsion system, the fuel system, other machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics, and overall maintenance as well as an out-of-water inspection and a sea trial.
Wooden Boat Survey

Michael Andrews specializes in wooden Carolina Sportfishing vessels along with wooden boats in general.
Insurance & Bank Survey

This inspection is performed so that the insurance company or bank can determine whether or not the vessel is an acceptable risk. They are interested in structural integrity and safety for its intended use. Most insurance companies require a survey on older boats. They will also want to know the vessel's fair market value.
Thermal Imaging

This service can be part of any type of survey, and can provide a non-invasive image based assessment of the condition of a vessel.
Appraisal Inspection

This inspection is performed to gather enough information to justify or determine the fair market value of the vessel. This is normally needed for financing, estate settlements, donations and legal cases.
Damage Inspection

The surveyor can be retained by an insurance company to determine the cause of a loss and determine the extent of loss related damage and may be asked to recommend repairs, review estimates, and determine the pre-loss value of a vessel. A vessel owner can retain a surveyor for the same purposes, but for the owner's behalf.
Expert Witness

An expert witness, in England, Wales and the United States, is a person whose opinion by virtue of education, training, certification, skills or experience, is accepted by the judge as an expert. The judge may consider the witness's specialized (scientific, technical or other) opinion about evidence or about facts before the court within the expert's area of expertise, referred to as an "expert opinion". Michael Andrews is a "Designated Expert Witness in the State of Georgia"
