Lewis Martin & Associates Ltd.

Tim Martin founded Marine Surveys Canada in 2004 in a bid to provide marine surveying and marine-­‐specific appraisal services that were largely non-­‐existent in Alberta at the time. The company rapidly became established as Alberta’s own marine survey and appraisal company. Tim subsequently relocated to Ontario, opening the eastern office of Marine Surveys Canada in 2011.

Tim has been actively working as a marine surveyor for 18 years, bringing technical and problem-­‐solving expertise to all levels of the Marine Surveys Canada operation. As a licensed marine technician, he provides know-­‐how and perspective on many of the common challenges with boat ownership. Tim has owned a marine dealership and managed marina service departments in eastern and western Canada. He also possesses some unique experience in labour relations, both in public and private industry, including unionized environments. Tim has been committed to ongoing education and holds ABYC Electrical and Corrosion Certifications.

Tim is an Accredited Marine Surveyor with the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors.

Craig Bjarnason

Craig comes to us with a diverse background in mechanical engineering, and a keen interest in boats. He is a mechanical engineering technologist and has also studied yacht design with the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology. This engineering and design background gives a great perspective to evaluating structures and systems, as well as the ability to decipher standards and regulations, as he currently designs and builds boats to be compliant with Transport Canada and ABYC standards.

An active boat designer as well as professional builder, his background in current standards and practices is pertinent to the surveying trade.  He also brings to the organization knowledge on specialty construction methods such as welded aluminum hulls and cold molded wood epoxy vessel construction.

Craig is not only a keen boat designer, builder, and surveyor, but actively sails and fishes local waters.

David W. Donnelly

David Donnelly is the former owner/president of a manufacturing company. He is a red seal machinist with 32 years experience. His attention to detail and high quality of professional delivery has earned the respect of his industry peers and a reputation of integrity. Building and maintaining lasting professional relationships has evolved throughout David’s career and he is aspiring to continuing that rapport as a marine surveyor.

David is an avid sailor who, having been raised in the Maritimes, has always had a fondness for all things nautical.
