**Steven Uhthoff** has spent his entire life aboard boats. At the age of 7 his parents decided to go cruising and headed south for the islands. By the time Steve was 18 he had logged 30,000 miles of sailing experience. His father, Steve Sr., is a well known shipwright and boatyard owner. He naturally taught Steve Jr. his skills in the marine trade, from replacing a frame in a wooden boat to spiling a plank to fit the hull, to replacing a mast or even installing a new diesel.
**Steve started his career at the age of 14** working for Annapolis Spars & Rigging and progressed to boat building and all aspects of repairs. In the late 1980s Steve was the owner and operator of Steve Yacht Repairs and Annapolis Harbor Boat Yard. In 2000, Steve sold the boatyard and opened Annapolis Gelcoat and Fiberglass Repairs. This diverse background has given Steve a great range of experience to identify potential problems and explain issues so they are easily understood.
After a lifetime of working in almost every other aspect of the marine industry, Steve served an apprenticeship with Robert Noyce, Marine Surveyor. In September 2006 Robert retired from the survey portion of R.A. Noyce & Associates. Robert continued to focus on new construction of Asian built vessels while Steve launched Steven Uhthoff Marine Surveys and now manages R.A. Noyce & Associates, Marine Surveyors.
If he not inspecting a boat, youre still likely to find him out on the water fishing, cruising, racing with friends or just poking around the Bay. Steve loves everything to do with boats, he enjoys meeting other boat owners and sharing his knowledge and experience during inspections.
Steve looks forward to discovering new boating equipment and learning about it as it comes out on the market. Youll also find him using new inspection equipment such as an Infrared Imaging camera or his tablet computer and custom inspection software. Steve is an Accredited Marine Surveyor with SAMS ® (Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors) and a member of ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) and the BoatUS Technical Exchange.
Steve even finds time to build boats. Here he is in the shop and at the helm of his very own design, dubbed the “Fishing Creek 15.
