This survey is for the express purpose of insurance and financing. It is not meant as a buyer’s survey.


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. Assure that all legally required and prudent safety components are aboard including anchor, skier down flag, flares and U.S. Coast Guard carriage items used in navigable waters, placards etc…


  1. The vessel has minor “beaching damage” on the centerline forward.       This is a cosmetic issue, address as desired.
  2. The outdrive’s skeg has minor chips, address as desired.
