Tarn Kelsey is a Certified Marine Surveyor with over 28 “official” years experience in yacht repair and maintenance. Tarns exposure to the marine community spans his entire life and has seen him through extensive cruising in the 1960s and 70s as well as several family restoration projects which includes but is not limited to a 70ft 1920s Consolidated Commuter Yacht that was sold ‘as is where is” (on the bottom in Greenport Harbor, Long Island) to a completely gutted surplus 94 ft military rescue boat. Tarns professional career includes Yacht Yard Manager, Parts manager and Project manager and finally found him operating his own marine repair company in Annapolis MD since 1991.
