The hull sides and transom were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull sides and transom are in good structural condition. There is minor damage to the vinyl striping. The deck and superstructure were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The deck and superstructure are in good structural and cosmetic condition. The deck hardware including safety rails and mooring devices was visually inspected. Overall the deck hardware is in good condition. The structural reinforcements including the engine bearers were visually inspected. The structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition. The bilge is dry. The interior of the vessel is neat, clean and orderly. The interior of the vessel is in satisfactory cosmetic condition. There is significant weathering and discoloration of the upholstery, both forward and aft. There are small stress cracks just forward of the starboard fuel fill fitting. The covers and separators between the ballast tanks and engine and the covers above the ballast tanks are not secure. This survey is not a mould inspection.

Location of through hulls as visible in travel lift slings: Port – two to port, one transducer Starboard: Two to starboard
Seawater systems: Reinforced hoses, single clamped connections
Bilge pumps: Rule 500 fully automatic (aft)
Comments: The engine and transmission were visually inspected and the engine was briefly started. The transmission was not engaged and no sea trial was performed. This survey is not a mechanical survey; please consult with a qualified marine technician for greater detail as to the condition of the machine systems. The external surfaces and peripheral components of the engine and transmission appear good. The engine oil is dark. The engine controls functioned normally. The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed. The propulsion components were visually inspected. The propeller shaft is near the bottom of the exit port, as visible from below. The engine room blower was energized. The through hulls were visually inspected and the valves were manipulated. The through hulls are in good condition. The seawater systems were visually inspected only, as the vessel was inspected on the trailer. Overall, the seawater systems appear good. The electric bilge pump was energized with its toggle switch.
Fuel: One plastic tank in bilge forward of engine, 40 gallon capacity*
Fill & vent: One fill fitting per side amidships
Feed & return: Flexible fuel grade hoses
Water: Ballast only
Comments: The fuel system including the tank, fill, vent and feed lines was visually inspected as installed. Where visible the fuel system components are in satisfactory – good condition. The condition and age of the fuel and the integrity of the tanks (fuel and ballast) is beyond the scope of this survey. Please consider filling all tanks for a simple, practical test of their integrity. Accuracy of tank level gauges is beyond the scope of this survey.
AC system: None
DC system: One 12-volt wet cell battery in box below post aft bench seat, battery switch by battery, second 12-volt sealed battery to port forward, 12 volt system
Wiring: Multi-strand wires
Circuit protection: Fuse panel below helm console
Comments: The electrical system including the batteries, wiring, circuitry components and circuit protection equipment was visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall the electrical system is in satisfactory condition. The condition of the batteries is beyond the scope of this inspection. Battery cables at the aft battery have clear insulation, similar to speaker wire. The connections of this battery are loose; the right base speaker below the helm console is damaged.
SAFETY AND LIFE SAVING
Portable fire extinguishers: None
Fixed fire system: None
Flotation devices: None
Horn/distress flares: Electric horn, no flares seen
Navigational/anchor lights: Combination bow light, all around lights
Anchor & ground tackle: None
Comments: The vessel is primarily used on inland lakes and rivers and thus may not be subject to federal carriage requirements for components; however they are a good idea. The vessel was not equipped with any fire extinguishers, floatation devices, distress signal flares, ground tackle or radio. The vessel is equipped with a functional electric horn, the navigational lights are properly arranged and installed, however the all around light is inoperative.
Trailer: Sport Boat Trailers, 02/2006, model Nautique 210 C21T4, GVWR 5000 lb., VIN: 4FBBC212361015400, painted white steel tubes, spare tire, winch, jack, fenders, bunks, guides, bearing buddies, CA license tag 4HJ5177
Boat: Fiberglass swim platform, boat cover, two plastic ballast tanks – one on each side of engine, ballast pumps, 3 ballast tank gauges, engine instrumentation includes tachometer with hour meter, oil, temp and volts, speedometer, Perfect Pass system, fuel level gauge, Pioneer stereo and sound system with amplifiers and speakers, plastic ballast tank forward on centerline, walk-through windshield, helm seating, forward and aft seats.
The vessel is a production fiberglass wake board boat equipped with a gasoline inboard engine. The vessel was manufactured in Orlando, Florida. The current owner is the original and sole owner. The current owner stated that all components are original, with a few upgrades including the Perfect Pass system, spinner wakeboard racks and stereo system. The vessel is basically structurally and mechanically sound. The vessel is suitable for its intended purpose as a wakeboard boat.
Overall Summary: Good
ACTUAL CASH VALUE $36,000
NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE $80,000
The actual cash value is the value that our research approximates the selling price of this vessel should be, at the time and place of our inspection. Consideration is given to vessel’s condition, geographic location, published listings and guides, comparable sales and listings, and market conditions. The new replacement value is the cost of this or a similar, new vessel, comparably equipped. The investment is the reported investment including purchase price and significant upgrades. No values include maintenance costs, storage or tax.
Standard Form Key: All systems are rated based upon their appearance, ratings include: Not examined, Not applicable, Faulty, Marginal, Satisfactory, Good, Excellent.
These recommendations are the surveyor’s ideas and suggestions for addressing deficiencies with damaged or suspect components or systems found during survey or general improvements. The primary recommendations address safety items, structural issues, operational issues or deficiencies which the surveyor determines are of greater importance or more expense than secondary deficiencies. For instance, items that pose a risk to passenger safety or immediate property damage are listed under primary deficiencies and cosmetic concerns are addressed under secondary deficiencies. Most of the recommendations have been addressed in the comments and usually they are discussed at the time of the inspection.
1. We strongly encourage providing all federally required carriage components, even if the vessel is used on inland lakes and waterways. This should include fire extinguishers, floatation devices, distress signal flares, stickers (trash, oil and carbon monoxide) and logical additional components including ground tackle and a VHF radio.
2. Assure the battery cables in use are suitable and intended for this purpose, replace as necessary. Comply with ABYC recommendations.
3. Properly make battery connections as to terminals to the aft battery; the current battery cables’ connections are loose to that battery.
4. Service and prove the all around / anchor light properly functional.
5. The propeller shaft is off center near the bottom of the exit port, modify if / as necessary or monitor and address as necessary.
1. The upholstery exhibits discoloration and weathering, with some cracking and age related damage. Address appropriately.
2. There is minor striping damage on the hull sides, address as desired.
3. There are small stress cracks forward of the starboard fuel fill fitting. Address if / as desired.
4. There is surface rust on the trailer and weathering / age damage on the fender guides. Address as desired.
5. Properly secure the separators and covers for the ballast tanks, they were found loose.
6. The right side bass speaker below the helm console is damaged, replace as desired.
7. Engine oil is dark, service the engine as necessary.
