George Little is a Lake Champlain-based surveyor, inspecting Special Interest, Classic, and Historic power and sail vessels, including those constructed of wood. He also performs Damage Assessments for underwriters.
He grew up in a sailing family, boating on Maine, Vermont and Florida waters.
After working with heavy-duty diesels in the Peace Corps, he operated an automotive repair facility for many years.
His migration from mechanical repair to surveying began in the early 1990's, and included a sojourn as an Accredited Member of the American Society of Appraisers, designated in Automotive Specialties. He was active in the Boston Chapter and a co-founder of the Vermont-New Hampshire Chapter.
He has been a member of the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors® since 1995, and designated as an Accredited Marine Surveyor (AMS® #511) since 1998.
His philosophy is that boats are powerful symbols of the human need for "transport" in more than just a physical sense. From this point of view, a surveyor speaks for the boat.
The tamarack tree is a member of the larch family, and is a deciduous evergreen. Also known as hackmatack, the roots are harvested for grown knees on wood vessels.
