Certified Marine Surveyor
WHAT IS MARINE SURVEY?
thorough inspection of a vessel, its equipment, machinery,
electrical systems, plumbing systems, hardware, and structural
members to determine its condition, appropriateness for its
intended service, and value.
and detailed report describing the vessel and its equipment as
found during survey.
on the general and specific condition of the vessel, its
systems, and its equipment.
analysis of any problems areas, deficiencies, or damage found
and comments on appropriate corrective action and cost
A marine survey,
while it does provide an inventory of the vessel and its
miscellaneous equipment, is far more than a list. A simple
statement that Boat "A" has an XYZ propulsion system
simply does not tell you what you need to know. Is the engine
appropriate or adequate for the vessel? Are the hoses in good
condition? Are there signs of excess vibration? Will you need a
new engine next year? Is it time to change the oil?
My report will help you to
see what I have seen, and it will provide you with enough
information to make decisions.
