"“Phil's expertise in Tonnage Admeasurement is superb. With all of our new vessel designs and conversions, tonnage is a sensitive issue, which can greatly effect the finished vessel. His ability to understand and communicate any issues with our designs, prior to construction, eliminate any concerns we may have that tonnage will be an issue upon delivery. He is passionate about an often overlooked, but highly important marine regulatory issue and always a pleasure to work with."

"Phil Essex is not only a leading authority on regulatory tonnage issues, he is also responsive, efficient and a pleasure to work with. For years, Phil has been my first choice for creative solutions to the most challenging tonnage issues. If Phil can say it better, go with whatever he wants - I would agree with it.
