Paul has been surveying inland waterway boats since 1997. His surveying experience is based upon: his masters Degree in Engineering; Diploma in Marine Surveying; experience as a Boat Safety Scheme Examiner; Gas Safe Registered engineer; creating and modifing British and International Standards; and member of the YDSA. Plus, a livetime of narrowboating!

Details can be found at RCR Consultancy. This is for professional boatbuilders and private individuals. Paul is authorised by the UK Approved Body for Recreational Craft Regulations (RCR) for Post Construction Assessment (PCA).
