Monak Marine Surveying
Monak Marine Surveying provides comprehensive inspections covering all electronic systems in a vessel as well as structure, cosmetic condition, findings or recommendations, and valuation.
Condition and Valuation
David started Monak Marine Surveying in 1996 and became a AMS (Accredited Marine Surveyor) in 1999. In 2007 he made the jump to full time surveyor.
His experience working on boats helps him understand what to look for in boats and in turn will help you receive a certified survey.
What's in a Survey?
The survey includes first and foremost a very thorough inspection of the vessel. Once the inspection is completed I will do research to determine Fair Market Value for the vessel surveyed. Once completed, a typed detailed report including identification of systems, Findings and Recommendations, and Fair Market Value (sample reports are available to examine).

Q. Will you travel?
You bet. I am located on Lake Erie in Huron, Ohio. My surveying travels have taken me as far as Buffalo, NY, Cincinnati, Ohio, Indianapolis, Indiana, Traverse City, Michigan, Chicago, Illinois, Florida and numerous locations in between. Although there is usually an extra charge involved, my clients enjoy the peace of mind, that I am performing the survey.
Q. Are you a boater?
Yes marine surveyors do find time to boat. My wife purchased a 1959 Lyman 19’ Runabout for my boys and I as a Christmas present. The boat needed new decks, windshield, bottom 1/3 of the transom, gunwhales, and paint job. She thought it would be a nice project for the boys and I. With the help of my cousin Brian Monak, Jaret and Caden and I worked on it for 2 years before she saw the water, LOOKS GREAT!
