Ed graduated with B.Sc honors in maritime studies specializing in yacht manufacturing and surveying.
He also took the IIMS diploma in marine surveying as part of our ongoing professional development, rather than as a route to surveying, gaining the highest mark possible.
Ed is a accredited or associate member of the Yacht designers and surveyors association (YDSA), a full member of the IIMS and a member survey of the marine engineers coding authority (MECAL).
Ed has over 10 years of professional marine industry experience from hands on in boat yards, running the repairs for a large sailing school, deliveries and engineering experience. He has over 60,000 yacht sea miles.
Ed also holds many RYA instructors qualifications, as well as the Yachtmaster Ocean commercial certificate in both sail and power, a qualification awarded to experienced skippers. He is particularly familiar with FRP/ GRP and also works with steel, aluminum and timber.
Ed combines a solid academic background with experience and determined approach to investigating any craft.
In recent years Ed has surveyed everything from a 2 man rowing boat to a 40m Luxury superyacht.
