This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on March 30, 2021 while it was hauled at Marine Group Boatworks, National City, CA and May 6, 2021 while the vessel was afloat in Pier 32 Marina slip 208, National City, CA and underway in San Diego Bay, San Diego, CA and XXXX and XXXX (brokers), the client and XXXX (captain) attended.  The current owner briefly attended.



Scope of Services

The vessel was examined by 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.

Comments: The vessel was inspected while hauled and afloat.  The hull bottom and keel were visually inspected and randomly sounded.   The hull bottom and keel are in satisfactory – good structural condition.  We noted three 1” blisters on the port side of the rudder, and a few smaller blisters.  There was lateral “play” between the rudder post and the tube.  The anti-fouling paint was failing in areas, some of which did not exhibit primer.  We did see primer at several areas where paint failed near the waterline.  There is black growth about several of the through hulls.  The keel is apparently lead and the paint is thin on the keel.  There is some pitting visible on the metal stern tube, most of it is covered by a zinc anode.  The hull sides and transom were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull sides and transom are in good structural and satisfactory cosmetic condition.  The blue hull paint is reportedly 13 years old.  The deck and superstructure were visually inspected and randomly sounded.  The deck and superstructure are in good structural and cosmetic condition.  There is a small void visible to port forward in the cockpit.   There was minor staining by the bimini bows’ bases.  There was discoloration about the windows forward of the windshield.  We heard a small void when percussion testing just forward of the aft waste deck fitting.  There were small gelcoat cracks in the deck near the aft end of the port traveler track.  There is a small knick on the starboard aft deck vent cowling base.  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.   There was wet varnish on many of the wooden components upon our arrival to the vessel for the in water portion of the survey, the varnish was less tacky near the end of the day.  The large deck hatches are crazed by their hinges.  The strut is disconnected from the port anchor rode locker hatch.  A small cover for a satellite audio / video component is detached from its hinge and temporarily reinstalled to port of the companionway.  The structural reinforcements including the longitudinals, bulkheads and liner were visually inspected and randomly sounded.  The structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition.   The bilge is holding moderate water, the water is covering the keel bolts. The source of the water is beyond the scope of this survey and there is staining in the bilge.  The interior cabin spaces are neat, clean and orderly.  The interior of the vessel is in good cosmetic condition.  The aft cabin door handle appears to be bent.  The galley carpet was wet.  We did not see the documentation number displayed.  The insulation is loose in the engine room.  The condition of the tender is beyond the scope of this inspection, the upholstery is sun damaged and the HIN is difficult to read.  This survey is not a mould inspection.  The condition of the coring, in the hull, deck and elsewhere as applicable is beyond the scope of this inspection.

Comments: The engine and transmission were visually inspected and tested during a sea trial.  The client had the engine and transmission 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 engine and transmission appear satisfactory.  There is corrosion on the aft end of the after cooler.  The engine was started cold and started quickly.  Wide open throttle was 3400 rpm per the tachometer.  The engine controls functioned normally.  The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed.  There is pitting on the stern tube visible externally.   The propulsion components including the propeller, propeller shaft, stern tube and shaft seal were visually inspected.  The propeller was manipulated.  The propeller shaft was manipulated in the stern tube and observed while underway.  Overall the propulsion components are in good condition.  The steering system was visually inspected and test operated.  There is lateral play in the rudder.   The steering system functioned normally.    There is fluid on the end of the steering actuator.  The generator was visually inspected, test operated and loaded.  The generator turned off during the sea trial, the cause is beyond the scope of this survey, otherwise it functioned normally.  There are salt crystals in the generator’s drip pan and corrosion on the heat exchanger.  The insulation is failing in the generator’s sound box.  The through hulls were visually inspected and the valves were manipulated.  The through hulls are in satisfactory condition, however many exhibit salt crystals and corrosion (in the bilge).  There were no labels on the through hulls, many of the through hulls located externally were not found internally.  As the exterior and interior inspections were performed at different times we could not correlation the location of through hulls externally and internally.   There are salt crystals on several of the through hulls forward of the engine.  The aft waste through hull and valve exhibit corrosion.  The aft HVAC through hull is corroded.  There is corrosion on the galley sink through hull.  One of the through hulls forward of the engine has its valve handle disconnected, another has no valve handle and no hose connected.  The condition of the bonding system is beyond the scope of this survey.  The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested.  Overall, the seawater systems are satisfactory.  The aft HVAC primary sea water hose exhibits cracks.  There was a leak from a strainer fitting serving the diaphragm bilge pump.  The submersible bilge pump was energized with its float switch, the diaphragm bilge pump was energized with a toggle switch, both pumped water.  The manual bilge pump was manipulated and appeared to function normally but was not well tested.
Summary: Satisfactory – Good 



Fuel: Two 240 liter plastic tanks below aft berth, 185 liter metal tank aft in forward cabins bilge
Fill & vent:  One tank fill fitting per side of transom hatch, one deck fill fitting to starboard forward, all labeled “diesel”, hoses mostly inaccessible
Feed & return: Flexible hoses, likely original, not labeled per US convention, valves on tank, Racor filters

Water: Deck fill fittings to starboard forward of amidships and to port forward of amidships labeled “water”, manifold outboard of port salon dinette, water capacity is 265 gallons (listing), tanks in salon, 265 gallon capacity *

Holding: Deck fittings to port aft, starboard forward and starboard amidships, labeled “waste”, plastic tank in foredeck (sail) locker, plastic tank in owner’s head, 60 gallon capacity (listing), tank in starboard head not seen


Comments: The fuel system including the tanks, fill, vent, feed and return lines was visually inspected as installed.  Where visible the fuel system components are in good condition. The condition and age of the fuel (and water) and the integrity of the tanks (fuel, water, holding) and hoses is beyond the scope of this survey.  The fuel hoses are likely original.  Please consider filling all tanks for a simple, practical test of their integrity.  There are salt crystals on top of the forward fuel tank.  The water pressure system functioned normally.   Accuracy of tank level gauges is beyond the scope of this survey.  There are minor stains on top of the aft holding tank.  There is a disconnected hose in the aft head bilge.  The day head is manual and uses sea water.  The other three heads are supplied by freshwater.  The forward shower sump pump is inoperative in the automatic mode, it was energized by a toggle switch in the port forward head cabinet.
Summary: Satisfactory 



AC system:  50A / 125 / 250V shore power inlet to starboard in transom space, shore power cord, 120 volt system
DC system: Two Lifeline GPL – 31T, 12V AGM batteries in forward passageway bilge, two battery switches by generator, two Lifeline GPL-4DL 12V AGM batteries below port forward dinette seat, five battery switches to port of companionway, six Lifeline GPL-4DL 12V AGM batteries in salon bilge, 12 and 24 volt system

Comments: Safety equipment for fire fighting protection appears satisfactory however the extinguishers have not been inspected, tagged and maintained per N.F.P.A. recommendations.  The fixed extinguisher is not a USCG approved unit and is a portable unit that has been connected to a pull cable terminated to port of the companionway.    Personal flotation devices are suitable for near coastal use.  Current distress signal flares are aboard.  A canister airhorn is aboard, it was not tested.  Waste and oil placards were seen.  No navigation rules were seen. The navigational and anchor lights are properly arranged, installed and functional.  The port navigational light is inoperative.  The ground tackle including the anchors and rode was visually inspected as installed and appears satisfactory.  We did not open and inspect the Fortress anchor.   The entire length of the anchor rode was not inspected and should be inspected prior to use.   The locker for the life raft is questionable due to its questionable use for deploying the raft in the darkest of night and roughest of sea conditions.
Summary: Satisfactory 



Tanks: One tank in dedicated, vented locker to port aft

Devices: Reducing regulator, pressure gauge, electric solenoid valve, galley range


Comments: The LP gas system including the tanks, tank locker devices and galley range was visually inspected and the galley range and electric solenoid valve were tested.  Overall, the installation of the LP system is satisfactory. The vessel is not equipped with a propane or carbon monoxide alarm.  The vessel has no smoke alarm.  The igniter is inoperative.  The stove burners do not have functional thermo couplers.
