Scope of Services


The vessel was examined by the surveyor and/or surveyor’s agents from all accessible areas of the interior without removal of secured panels, destructive testing or disassembly.  The hull bottom laminate, plating and/or planking was examined by percussion sounding and visual inspection only. No moisture content readings were taken, and no destructive testing was performed.  The surveyor may have used a moisture meter if/when they deemed it useful or if specifically requested by client.  Exterior hardware was visually examined for damage and drive components were tested by sight only.  The inspection of engines, generators, machinery and related mechanical systems is not within the scope of this survey.  Only a brief cursory inspection of the machinery was conducted, and no opinion of their overall condition was formed.  Client shall retain the services of a qualified mechanic, engine surveyor or other expert to inspect such engine, generators, machinery and related mechanical systems.  Tankage was inspected from visible surfaces only and no opinion was rendered as to their overall condition.  On sailing vessels, the rig was not inspected aloft, nor were sails inspected unless they were visible during a sea trial.  Client shall retain the services of a qualified rig surveyor or other expert to inspect sails, rigging and equipment.  The electrical system was visually inspected where accessible, and electronic and electrical components powered only with permission of or in the presence of the vessel’s owner or agent.  No in-depth testing or examination of the electrical system or electric schematic was conducted.  Specifications were taken from published sources, measurements if made, should be considered approximate.  The recommendations are based on federal and state regulations, industry standards, and/or surveyor‘s own personal experience.  The market value is based on research of available new/used comparable vessels, with consideration of geographic area where the vessel is located and reported sale prices where available.  The surveyor will refer to and may reference CFRs, NFPA and ABYC recommendations (and/or other services) as the surveyor deems reasonable but not all regulations and recommendations will be applied nor should this report be relied upon as full compliance with the aforementioned entities.  Every vessel inspection is different, and limitations may alter the scope of this survey, some limitations will be implied in the text of the report and some will be explicitly detailed. A Marine Survey Agreement which is reviewed and signed by the client details the terms governing this marine 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. Service and prove the forward bilge pump functional in the automatic mode, it did not energize with its float switch.  The client stated the float switch was replaced on 5/26/21.
  2. Service and prove the starboard navigation light functional, it did not illuminate.  The client stated the navigational light was replaced on 5/26/21 and sent a photo.
