Founded in 1986 when Major Dave MacGillis, of the Florida Marine Patrol, organized and published the Vessel Theft Investigators National Roster. This roster was intended to assist investigators combat marine crime, a high profit, low risk crime that was out of control, by providing contact persons from various agencies involved in marine theft investigations.

In 1989, the first three-day training seminar was held in New Orleans, LA.  The following year, 1990,
the National Association of Marine Investigators (NAMI) was formed. As NAMI grew, our membership increased both nationally and internationally.  In 1994, the organization went International. In 1996, IAMI-Europe was established. We are represented by marine professionals from all over the world.  Whether your case is local or a county away, IAMI members are ready to lend a hand.  Worldwide networking is one of the best benefits of IAMI.

Crews hear what's important to quickly operate and communicate with each other and get the job done.

Clear communication is essential for a safe, effective and productive workplace.  Too often, however, excessive levels of background noise make communication difficult.  An estimated 22 million Americans are exposed to hazardous levels of workplace noise each year four million are exposed every day.  If you work in the maritime environment, you are likely among those four million.  It has long been known that marine vessels are noisy places, and studies have demonstrated a clear correlation between long-term assignments aboard Navy ships and an increased rated of hearing loss.
