This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on April 8, 2022 while the vessel was hauled at Driscoll Boatworks Shelter Island and afloat at Cabrillo Isle Marina slip XXXX, San Diego, CA and XXX (broker), XXXX (client’s representative), XXXX (cousin of representative), XXXX (mechanic), XXXX (captain) and Kells Manthei (undersigned surveyor) 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.

|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 sales prices, Yachtworld.com, Boats.com and BoatTrader.com current listings. The vessel that sold for $62,266 in October 2020 in Rothesay, NB, Canada is equipped with Cummins diesel engines; diesel engines typically hold more value than similarly sized gasoline engines, and the vessel sold towards the beginning of the Covid-19 induced spike. The vessel that sold for $52,000 in Isleton, CA in March 2021 is the same vessel that sold for $64,000 in December 2021; it was kept in a covered dock and its navigational electronics are installed. The surveyed vessel only has one helm station whereas several of the comparable vessels have upper and lower helm stations. The surveyed vessel exhibits deferred maintenance and several of its navigational electronics have been removed. The interior of the surveyed vessel has been updated, however, no other notable upgrades have been performed. The market continues to have an upward value movement due to the extended Covid-19 induced spike.
