Pre-purchase survey of 1998 50’ Trad Narrowboat – Oct 23

“David was a pleasure to communicate with and instruct for a pre-purchase survey. On survey day he provided an excellent and professional service, and I hugely appreciate all the guidance and knowledge he shared with me. The subsequent report was promptly produced, clear, and comprehensive. I will be coming back to David for all future marine surveys I may require”.

Two Pre-purchase Narrowboat surveys - Apr / May 23

“In a world where average/OK service is all too often the norm, it's always a pleasure when you accidentally encounter something so much better.  David, was always very  responsive, flexible when booking the survey, competitively priced, happily answered my endless lists of questions, and produced a clear, high quality report that really helped me make a clear decision. Professional throughout.  Would use David again, without hesitation”.

Pre-purchase survey of a 1994 Pat Buckle 58' Narrowboat

"David was recommended to me by a friend, and has carried out two pre-purchase narrowboat surveys and a valuation report for me, as well as advising more generally on wooden hulled vessels. I’ve found him to be an excellent marine surveyor. He is knowledgeable and very thorough, and communicates clearly and efficiently. I’ve particularly appreciated his patience with my numerous and inexpert questions and his willingness to explain things thoroughly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend White Hat Marine Surveying".

Insurance Survey of 1984 51' Colecraft Narrowboat

"I employed David privately in his role as a Marine Surveyor, initially for a survey of my 36 year old narrowboat for insurance purposes and subsequently to advise and agree essential work with a competent repair yard and me. Throughout I found David to be friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and very competent. He was content for me to witness the survey and willing to explain and discuss matters there and then. There's no doubt this was a good catch of a significant issue with my Narrowboat hull. My insurance company, repair yard and I were content with his thorough reports. He is properly qualified, unlike some others in this business. His surveys are competitively priced, even when somewhat distant from his base. I have no hesitation recommending him for survey work and intend to use him again when the time comes".
