My name is Dylan Bailey. I have 29 years in the boating industry. As a son of a boat builder, I was exposed to boats at an early age. I have built, lived on, and sailed on boats most of my life.
As a result of working with custom boat builders on the Chesapeake, I gained first-hand knowledge of a variety of building materials including metal (steel and aluminum), wood (cold-molded, ply and carvel plank) and fiberglass (cored and solid). My vast experience includes the complete installation of both electrical and mechanical systems as well as paint systems that are unique to each material. I specialize in identifying and addressing challenges in these aspects of your marine craft. I have worked on the construction of power and sail, pleasure and commercial vessels.
As a Marine Surveyor, I learned the art of surveying the “old school” way; I served as an apprentice which provided hands-on training and offered valuable experience.
As a boater, I have sailed thousands of miles inshore and offshore.
As a Marine Surveyor, it is my job to work for you and only you, using my years of experience and knowledge to provide a thorough and precise report. Please email for a sample report. email@example.com
Every vessel is inspected to standards as set forth by the American Boat & Yacht Council, the United States Coast Guard, and the National Fire Prevention Association.
