This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on February 25, 2022 while the vessel was hauled at Safe Harbor Boatyard at Shelter Island and afloat at Kona Kai Marina slip XXX, San Diego, CA in clear and sunny conditions, and XXXX (listing broker), XXXX (client), 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 and Knoxvilleyachtsales.com current listing prices below. The average reported sales price for similar vessels sold on the West Coast is $149,366. The reported sales prices have a wide range. The vessels that sold for $163,000 in December 2021 in San Rafael, CA and $185,000 in July 2021 in Huntington Beach, CA are the best comparable vessels as they are closest in age, date of sale and have similar h.p. rated engines (370 h.p.). The vessel that sold for $223,000 in June 2021 in Ventura, CA is an outlier; it is a Limited Edition model, two years newer and is equipped with higher h.p. rated engines. There is no information about the 4600 SCB listed for $253,000 in Miami Florida; both vessels are equipped with 450 h.p. Cummins engines, it appears to have many of the same systems as the other 4600 SCB listed in Miami for $154,900, however it does appear to have updated lighting and upholstery (according to photos). The surveyed vessel is in average condition, has recently had Awlgrip system applied to the hull sides, has upgraded navigational electronics and one new engine. These factors place the surveyed vessel above the average.

|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.|
- Maintain the fire extinguishers per NFPA recommendations. Extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years. Extinguishers should be evenly spaced throughout the vessel for easy access in emergencies. Lockers that have extinguishers stored in them should be properly marked.
- The client intends to move the vessel to Canada; assure that all safety systems and required carriage items are compliant with federal regulations of the country that the vessel is being moved to.
- Provide all federally required carriage items if the vessel remains in the US, including: current and approved distress signal flares, a copy of the navigation rules and a waste management plan.
- The chain rode was heavily rusted and broke in two during our inspection. Inspect the chain rode for any additional deficiencies and address appropriately. Provide a secondary anchor and rode for emergencies or two anchor situations.
- Determine the source of the freshwater leak that was seen at the water heater and address appropriately. Dry and clean the area to allow detection of future weeps or leaks.
- The heat exchange hoses on the water heater are cracked. Replace the hoses to eliminate liabilities.
- There is corrosion about the base of the water heater and a freshwater leak was seen about it. Determine the significance and cause (as possible) of the corrosion and address appropriately; clean the water heater and area to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and corrosion accumulation. We recommend installing a hose onto the pressure relief fitting on the water heater that drains into the bilge.
- We were unable to energize the engine room lights. Service the lights as necessary and prove them properly functional.
- Replace the wing nuts on the battery terminals with steel nuts and lock washers and install lock washers on other battery terminals per ABYC recommendations.
- Replace the lens covers that are missing from several lights, including: one engine room light, one overhead light in the cockpit and the light by the water heater to eliminate liabilities.
- Determine the source of the fuel below the port engine, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean and dry the area to allow detection of future weeps or leaks. We recommend placing absorbent rags below the engines to allow detection of future leaks.
- The fuel feed, vent and return hoses are dated 1998 (we did not see dates on the vent hoses). The industry accepted standard “rule of thumb” for the life expectancy of fuel hoses is ten years. Either replace the hoses or assure they are suitable for continued use and replace as necessary.
- There is corrosion on several components of the port engine, including: the heat exchanger, transmission oil cooler, raw water pump, aftercooler and on the coolant pipe below the heat exchanger (a coolant leak was seen at this pipe). Determine the cause of the corrosion, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean components to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and corrosion accumulation.
- The engines’ seawater hoses are aged. Either replace the hoses or monitor and replace them as necessary.
- There is soot on the starboard engine’s lagging at the turbo. Determine the cause of the soot (as possible), eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the components to allow detection of future soot accumulation, weeps or leaks.
- The starboard engine’s exhaust hose to the muffler has a crack, appears aged and has staining on the hose. Either replace the hose or monitor and replace as necessary.
- The hoses on the propeller shaft seals are cracked and have rust stains. Replace the hoses to eliminate liabilities.
- There is corrosion on both propeller shaft seals. Determine the cause of the corrosion, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the components to allow detection of future weeps, leaks and corrosion accumulation.
- The port engine’s voltmeter is intermittent. Replace the meter as necessary.
- The engines’ seawater intake hoses to the strainers are cracked. Replace the hoses to eliminate liability.
- The port propeller shaft seal was seen leaking water more than the starboard seal. Determine the cause of the leak, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean and dry the area to allow detection of future weeps or leaks.
- Determine the cause of the moisture on the base of the starboard engine’s aftercooler, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and dry the aftercooler to allow detection of future weeps or leaks.
- The starboard trim tab is missing and there is corrosion pitting on the port tab. The listing broker reported that the new tabs are awaiting arrival to install. Replace the trim tabs and prove them properly functional.
- The generator’s seawater intake hose is cracked. Replace the hose.
- The anchor roller is severely deteriorated and is missing the middle section. Replace the roller.
- The salon door does not lock. Service components as necessary and prove the door’s lock functional.
- Determine why the starboard shower had pressure in the hose but did not dispense from the shower head and address appropriately.
- The spotlight does not move up or down. Service or replace components as necessary and prove the spotlight properly functional.
- The port salon sole’s longitudinal support / joist is cracked just forward of the aft support strut and has a makeshift repair with bolts and nuts. Determine the significance of the crack and address as necessary. There is similar but lesser cracking in the same area on the starboard joist. Determine the significance of the cracking and address as necessary.
- A sound difference was noted when percussion testing aft on the starboard sole longitudinal / joist. Determine the significance of the sound difference and address as necessary.
- The vessel has a starboard side list. Determine the cause of the list and address as necessary.
- The starboard propeller shaft was more difficult to turn when inspected while hauled. Determine the cause and address appropriately or as necessary.
- There is corrosion on the raw water washdown through hull fitting and on the engines’ seawater intake through hull fittings.
