|Bilge: Holding moderate water|
|Comments: The vessel was inspected while hauled and afloat. The hull bottom was visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull bottom is in satisfactory structural condition. There are small blisters on the hull bottom and keel. They were not counted, but there are likely less than one hundred and most are less than 1” in diameter. There is a diagonal protrusion on both sides of the keel, approximately 10’ forward from the aft end which sounds more solid than the other portions of the keel. The significance of the audible differences is beyond the scope of this survey. There is 9” x 3” area of damage to the bottom of the keel apparently from impact, the damage is into several layers of laminate, and it is approximately in line with the propeller shafts’ alleyways. The anti-fouling paint is thin. There is a 2’ x 2’ rectangular slight protrusion just aft of the keel. The significance of the protrusion is beyond the scope of this survey. The hull sides and transom were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull sides and transom are in satisfactory structural and satisfactory – good cosmetic condition. The hull sides have been painted. There are several dings on the bow. There is a 12” vertical crack on the port side at and above the waterline, at the original transom. There are scratches on the starboard hull side forward. There are dents on the lower rub rails on both sides of the hull. There are rub marks on the starboard side of the swim platform. There is rub damage on the port side from the boarding ladder. There are rust stains about the port lights, visible externally. The stains are mostly at the fasteners. The deck and superstructure were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The deck and superstructure are in satisfactory structural and cosmetic condition. The aft flybridge deck flexes underfoot though it percussion tests normally. There are soft areas on the inboard lower edge of the forward flybridge seat, near the bottom of the antenna mast and inboard of the sliding door near the deck. The hardtop is extremely flexible underfoot. The starboard center pilaster sounds “hollow”. There has been movement of the foredeck support visible overhead in the anchor locker. The deck beams are mounted on shims, fiberglass at the beams and the shims appear to have been moved slightly. The deck hardware including safety rails, mooring devices and hatches was visually inspected and most hatches and the port lights were opened and closed. Overall the deck hardware is in satisfactory condition. The aft deck shade support is loose at its connection at the starboard aft pilaster. The client found a water leak accumulating in the port aft light in the master stateroom. Window tracks are weathered with corrosion by products. The tender is low on air and reportedly has a slow air leak. The deck hatch aft of the master berth is sealed and is no longer functional. We did not access this area below the aft deck carpet. We could not open the port light in the master head. There are water stains below the port lights to starboard in the master head indicative of leaks. The gaskets in the port lights are aged. The structural reinforcements including the stringers and bulkheads were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition. The bilge is holding significant water; the origin of the water is beyond the scope of this survey. The interior cabin spaces are neat, clean and orderly. The interior of the vessel is in satisfactory cosmetic condition. There is water damage on the steps to the upper deck from the lower helm area. Loose ballast was found throughout the port side of the vessel and to starboard aft of the aft cabin. There is water damage above the door to the aft deck and above the day head. There is a cracked wood piece above the saloon wet bar. There is an odor to port in the master stateroom. The wood under the master carpet is in rough condition. There are stains on the mirrors in the master head. There is white powder below the cabinets on both sides of the master stateroom. There is damaged veneer below the port cabin’s head door threshold. The sideliner inboard in the port cabin is damaged. The door is pushed into a small locker forward in the port cabin and there is no handle to open the door. There are stains below the port light to port in the forward cabin. There is mould and mildew in various locations, including to starboard forward of the forward cabin. There is damage to the locker hatch in the bottom of the aft anchor rode locker compartment. This survey is not a mould inspection. The condition of the coring, in the deck, hull, stringers, and elsewhere as applicable, is beyond the scope of this inspection.|

|Comments: The engines and transmissions were visually inspected and tested during a sea trial. The client had the engines and transmissions inspected by a mechanic, please refer to the mechanical survey report for greater detail as to the condition of the machine systems. The external surfaces and peripheral components of the engines and transmissions appear satisfactory. The engines have reportedly been rebuilt at different times. The engines were started cold and started normally. The exhaust smoke opacity was higher to starboard than to port upon startup. There are numerous hour meters though the accuracy of the hour meters is beyond the scope of this survey. The engine controls did not function normally. The electronic controls shifted to neutral unexpectedly many times during the sea trial. The broker believes that this is a problem with the battery voltage and the way the DC supply is maintained. The controls malfunctioned during an attempted wide open throttle test that was not performed. The client and broker stated that the engines had turned up to 2200 rpms previously during the sea trial. There is heavy vibration in the aft cabin at higher speeds. The oil filters are dated 19-Mar-2013, on all the engines and generators. The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed. There are stains below the port engine’s exhaust tube aft in the engine room. The exhaust hoses for both engines are cracked aft in the master stateroom bilge. There is a “trap” in the exhaust hose to port in the master stateroom, the starboard side was not accessed in this area. The external flap is missing from the starboard exhaust discharge fitting on the transom. The propulsion components including the propellers, propeller shafts, struts and shaft seals were visually inspected. The propellers were percussion tested and spun with a fixed object adjacent to the blades. The propeller shafts were manipulated in the struts and observed while underway. Overall the propulsion components are in satisfactory condition. The pedro hoses (flexible shaft seal hoses) exhibit age damage; they are mostly covered with hose clamps. There are water weeps at both propeller shaft seals. The steering system was visually inspected and test operated. The steering system functioned normally. There are stains and a weep at the starboard rudder port. The engine room blowers were energized. The generators were visually inspected, test operated and loaded. The generators functioned normally. There is limited access to the outboard sides of the generators. There are salt crystals by both of the port generator’s water pumps. The through hulls were visually inspected and we attempted to manipulate many of the valves. The through hulls appear to be in satisfactory condition but most of the valves were not moved. There is an unused and uncapped through hull to port aft in the engine room. The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall, the seawater systems are satisfactory. The age and condition of many of the hoses is unknown and questionable. The hoses have been replaced at different times per their appearance. The water maker has never been used. There are oily stains in the bilge by the water maker’s through hull, to starboard forward in the engine room. The fin stabilizers were not functioning properly. There are rust stains from the port fin stabilizer (interior of hull). There is an oil leak by the starboard fin stabilizer (interior of hull) and it was barely moving. There is significant rotational play of the stabilizers, without moving the shafts. The autopilot remote at the lower helm station was not properly displayed. Several of the bilge pumps did not function when initially tested. Their switches were found to be in the off position versus the auto position. The owner’s representative stated that there is a pump in the aft portion of the vessel, it was not accessed, inspected or tested. There is no proper bridle for the tender. There is a line bridle in use.|

The vessel is a limited production fiberglass motor vessel equipped with two diesel engines and two diesel generators. The vessel has had at least three owners. The hull was extended by the transom at Baja Naval Boat Yard in Ensenada, Mexico. The exact year is unknown but the broker believes it was approximately 1995. The current owner has reportedly had both engines rebuilt. The current owner purchased the vessel in 2001. The vessel has been for sale for several years and has seen very little usage recently. The vessel was inspected while hauled, afloat and during a brief sea trial. The vessel is basically structurally and mechanically sound. The vessel exhibits many characteristics typical for a vessel of its age; many are not detailed in this report. The vessel is basically structurally sound, but has a many deficiencies. Upon completion of the recommendations the vessel should be suitable for its intended purpose as a near coastal cruising vessel.
Overall Summary: Satisfactory
|ACTUAL CASH VALUE||NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE||INVESTMENT|
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. In most instances the data found while researching the value is stored in our file for this survey. We primarily use market value analysis methodology for determination of value.
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.|
