Ask A Surveyor

The roles and responsibilities of marine surveyors are often misunderstood. What do marine surveyors look for on recreational vessels? What are the most common issues on pleasure boats on the BC West Coast? What can you do to prepare for a survey and what should you look for in their reports? Sarah White will go over survey standards and techniques to help demystify the process.


Sarah has spent her life interested in everything about boats—from how they’re built to the people who use them. Her 22-year career has covered almost every aspect of recreational marine service, from working as marine service technician, to being yacht service manager, and transitioning into marine surveying as a partner in Yacht Associates International. Sarah is also a board member and instructor for Quadrant Marine Institute in Vancouver.
