This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on August 24, 2021 while the vessel was on a trailer at Shelter Island boat ramp and afloat in San Diego bay and offshore San Diego, CA and the client, his son and XXX (current owner) 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.

|Deck hardware: Tow post aft, T-top, center console, set of stern cleats, bow bits|
|Longitudinals/stringers: Fiberglass hull liner|
|Layout/interior components: Center console|
|Comments: The vessel was inspected on a trailer and underway. The hull bottom was visually inspected and randomly sounded as possible on the trailer. The hull bottom is in good structural condition. The hull bottom is unpainted (no anti-fouling paint). The hull sides / tubes and transom were visually inspected and the transom was randomly sounded. The hull sides / tubes and transom are in good condition. The tube has just been replaced with a new tube and has a serial number (which appears similar to a hull number) indicating it is a 2021. There are a few scratches on the bow and forward on the starboard outer strake. The deck and superstructure were visually inspected. The deck and superstructure are in good structural and satisfactory cosmetic condition. The deck hardware including safety rails, mooring devices and hatches was visually inspected. Overall the deck hardware is in good condition. The aluminum T-top flexes underway and some of the fasteners are into the fiberglass, most of the fasteners are into the aluminum console’s flange. The structural reinforcements including the liner was visually inspected and randomly sounded. The structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition. The bilge is holding minimal water. There was a rusty oil sheen on the bilge water following the sea trial. There is a high waterline in the aft bilge, likely indicative of a prior water accumulation event. The interior of the vessel is in satisfactory cosmetic condition. This survey is not a mould inspection. The condition of the coring in the hull, deck, transom, stringers and elsewhere as applicable, is beyond the scope of this inspection.|
|Summary: Satisfactory – Good|

|Comments: The engine and outdrive were visually inspected and tested during a sea trial. This survey is not a mechanical survey. Please consult with a qualified technician for greater detail as to the condition of the machine systems. The hour meter on the new engine instruments read 28.5 at the beginning of the sea trial. We did not record what the current owner found on the prior hour meter and accuracy of the engine hour meter is beyond the scope of this survey. The engine started cold and started quickly. The external surface and peripheral components of the engine and outdrive appear satisfactory. There is surface corrosion externally on the engine, on the jack shaft and the transmission coupling assembly. External paint is failing on the engine. There is a crack in the outdrive’s housing at the top edge of the propeller. The significance of the crack is beyond the scope of this survey. Wide open throttle was 2,450 rpm per the tachometer and top speed was approximately 35 miles per hour. The engine controls functioned normally. The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed. The exhaust system is unusual for an outdrive, it discharges through a fitting on the starboard side of the transom assembly. The propulsion components including the outdrive and propeller were visually inspected and manipulated. The propeller is slightly hard to spin. Overall the outdrive and propeller appear satisfactory. The steering system was visually inspected and test operated. The steering system functioned normally. The steering is a bit tight. The current owner reports this is normal for this type of outdrive. The through hull was visually inspected and the valve was manipulated. The through hull is in good condition. We did not remove the hull drain plug. The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall, the seawater systems are satisfactory. The only seawater system is the engine seawater supply. The electric bilge pump was energized with its “momentary on” toggle switch. It did not energize with its float switch. The manual bilge pump was not tested. The manual bilge pump pickup hose is disconnected.|
|Fuel: 35 gallon plastic tank below foredeck|
|Fill & vent: Deck fill fitting forward labeled “diesel”, USCG type A2 hose (where visible)|
|Feed & return: USCG type A1 flexible hoses, Racor filter, valves forward of engine|
|Comments: The fuel system including the tank, fill, vent, feed and return lines was visually inspected as installed. Where visible the fuel system components are in satisfactory condition. The condition and age of the fuel, (water and waste) and the integrity of the tanks (fuel, water and holding) and hoses is beyond the scope of this survey. There is minor debris in the Racor filter bowl. Please consider filling the tank for a simple, practical test of its integrity. Accuracy of tank level gauge is beyond the scope of this survey.|
|Summary: Satisfactory – Good|
|AC system: 30A / 125V shore power inlet to port on center console, 120 volt system|
|DC system: Two West Marine starting 800 (model 15020100) 7/21 sticker 12 volt batteries in plastic boxes in aft bilge, battery switch on panel, 12 and 24 volt system|
|Wiring: Multi-strand wires|
|Circuit protection: AC panel on console includes main and branch circuit breakers, DC branch circuit breakers on center console|
|Comments: The electrical system including the shore power inlet, batteries, wiring, circuitry components and circuit protection equipment was visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall the electrical system is in satisfactory condition. We did not test the AC electrical system. There are water stains in the battery boxes. The battery box lids do not fix the boxes. There is no GPS or MMSI information in the vhf. The multifunction device reset twice during the sea trial, this is often associated with low voltage. The cause for this particular malfunction is beyond the scope of this survey. The condition of the batteries is beyond the scope of this inspection.|
|Summary: Satisfactory – Good|

|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. The most relevant data found while researching the value is included below. We primarily use market value analysis methodology for determination of value.
Explanation of value opinion: The value is based on the soldboats.com reported sale prices and the asking prices found on various websites below. The two most important factors distinguishing these types of vessels is their engine fuel type and the military grade build versus recreational build. The only diesel ribs in the SoldBoats reported sales comps are two that sold in Great Britain for approximately $31,000 each. The best comparable boat is the 2002 Zodiac 733, asking $55,000. It is a similar boat, but is two years newer. The vessel inspected is slightly different with a custom T-top, new electronics, recently serviced electrical system and outdrive. Both vessels have new tubes. West coast traditionally hold a higher value and all of the data considered in this vessel.

|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.|
- Bring aboard all legally required carriage items include required, current and approved distress signal flares, garbage placard, oil placard and waste management plan.
- Determine the source of the rust stains and oil in the bilge water following the sea trial. Eliminate the source, clean the bilge to allow detection of any future issues.
- Determine the significance of the crack in the outdrive housing at the top of the propeller and address if / as necessary. The propeller was not removed during our survey.
- Service and prove the bilge pump functional in the automatic mode, it was not functional with the float switch.
- Reconnect the hose to the manual bilge pump and prove the manual bilge pump properly functional.
- Provide GPS and MMSI information to the vhf so that it will function in the distress mode.
- Determine why the multifunction device reset twice during the sea trial and eliminate the cause of this condition.
- There are minor scrapes on the bow and on the starboard outer strake forward, address as desired.
- Clean the bilge to remove the highwater line and staining and clean the battery boxes to remove staining to allow detection of any future water accumulation events.
- The bottom of the vessel was visually inspected and percussion tested as possible on the trailer, the trailer limits the inspection, consider inspecting the vessel off of the trailer in a lifting device which provides more access and addressing any deficiencies found.
- The hull bottom is unpainted and the client stated his intention to leave the vessel in the water over the summer months, paint the bottom as necessary.
- The T-top flexes underway and at least two of the fasteners are into the fiberglass deck versus the aluminum console. Assure that the T-top is properly secured or address if / as necessary.
- There is corrosion and paint failure externally on the engine and transmission and corrosion on the forward end of the jack shaft and coupler. Eliminate any cause of corrosion, address any damage, clean and paint to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
- As possible, determine the actual engine hours and record them for future reference and maintenance purposes.
- The engine did not reach its designed rpm of 2,500 it reached 2,450 per the tachometer. Determine why it did not reach the designed specification and address appropriately.
- The propeller is somewhat hard to turn, determine the significance and address if / as necessary.
- The steering is stiff, determine the significance and address if / as necessary.
- Provide properly sized battery box lids which fit the boxes appropriately. The current lids do not properly fit the boxes.
- Clean the fuel filter bowl and fuel as necessary. There is debris in the bowl.
- The following components were not tested or inspected: AC electrical system, hull drain fitting, manual bilge pump, sound signaling apparatus, all functions of entertainment devices (stereo) and all functions of navigational electronics (power up and basic functions were tested).
