The principals of North American Marine Consultants, LLC, James F. Pritchard and Keith J. Weber have extensive experience in the marine and financial services industries. Pritchard, who is a certified NAMS surveyor and a member of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), has worked in the marine industry for 35 years in numerous capacities.
