Surveyors inspect American Tug

Joint meeting of NAMS & SAMS tour American Tug factory



We recently led a tour of the American Tug factory in La Conner for a joint meeting of the northwest surveyors.  This included both SAMS the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors and NAMS, the National Association of Marine Surveyors

When purchasing a pre-owned boat a Marine Survey is conducted to inspect the boat and make sure the boat is in good shape and is free of defects, damage and to assess its value.  This protects the buyer and is also required by banks and marine insurance carriers.

SAMS and NAMS are the two organizations that accredit surveyors and are your assurance of the surveys quality. 

It was fun to have the group come through the factory as they recognized our great quality, while at the same time asking us some good technical questions.
