"His reports are professional, accurate, and timely" - Liz Merriman, Nauticat 33
Hello, I am Steve Hayes
My career started in aviation as an A&P mechanic (15 yrs), where I also earned an IA - Inspector Authorization - from the FAA, and worked for Raytheon Aerospace for 9 years. After moving to the pacific northwest in 1988, I choose to stay here and that brought me into the construction trade. I owned and operated my contracting business for 14 years. During that time I worked towards getting my captains license and worked for a marine salvage and rescue company. Being on the water was the paramount reason to live here and that meant owning and maintaining boats. I have owned both wood and fiberglass vessels of power and sail. I have sent myself to classes and studied many manuals/books on boat maintenance. I have passed ABYC testing for Standards and Marine Electrical. My goal was to become a marine surveyor. In 2012 I was accepted into the Society of Marine Surveyors (SAMS®) as a surveyors associate, and in 2015 became an Accredited Marine Surveyor.
My surveys have always been accepted by the insurance industry as they are neat, professional and accurate. I am a licensed captain with a 100 ton rate. I have worked for Vessel Assist N.W. as a tow captain, as deckhand for Guemes Island Ferry, and was on-call for oil spill response with Global Marine. I am dedicated to the safety and well being of the marine industry, and to a clean environment.
