This inspection was performed upon the request of the client listed above on September 30, 2021 while the vessel was hauled at Driscoll Boat Works, Shelter Island and afloat at Sunroad Resort Marina Slip XXX, San Diego, CA and XXX (listing broker), XXX (client’s broker), XXX (client), XXX (captain), XXX (mechanic, Dependable Marine) and Kells Manthei (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.

VALUES

 

ACTUAL CASH VALUE NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE INVESTMENT

N / A

 

 

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 average sale price of similar vessels on Soldboats.com is $342,281 and the average current listing price of similar vessels on Yachtworld.com is $418,796.  The most relevant sale prices are West Coast vessels.  The majority of the Soldboats.com comparable vessels are equipped with higher horsepower engines than the surveyed vessel (typically, higher horsepower engines hold more value).  The surveyed vessel exhibits deferred and recent maintenance.  The condition of the vessel is the most significant negative factor in the valuation.  The condition of the vessel, its systems and its location have been factored into our valuation.  The data from Soldboats.com and Yachtworld.com have factored in the demand and value spike attributed to Covid-19.

RECOMMENDATIONS

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.

 

PRIMARY

 

 

  1. 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.
  2. Provide federally required, approved and current distress signal flares and provide a distress signal flag to make the handheld SOS strobe legally compliant.
  3. Provide a current copy of the US Navigation rules.
  4. Determine the current function of the navigational lights and prove all installed fixtures functional.  Assure the installation of the navigational lights complies with federal and international regulations or modify appropriately.
  5. Provide a secondary anchor and rode for emergencies or two anchor situations.
  6. We strongly recommend the installation of line rode or line at the bitter-end of the primary anchor rode for quick-disconnect in emergency situations.
  7. The fuel fill hose for the port fuel tank is cracked and the starboard feed hose is cracked at the fuel tank.  The dates seen on fuel hoses indicate they are original.  The industry standard life expectancy “rule of thumb” for fuel hoses is 10 years.  Replace the hoses.
  8. There is dark liquid on the waste hoses and dead bugs on the hoses.  Determine the cause of this unusual condition and address appropriately.
  9. Provide and install a secondary securing mechanism for the primary anchor and install a retaining wire in the anchor shackle.
  10. There are portable lights that are not properly secured in the engine room and the majority of the engine room lights are inoperative.  Service the engine room lights and prove them properly functional and remove the portable lights as they are unsafe.
  11. Input position data into the vhf to allow the function of the distress mode.
  12. Install a locking ring in the forward shore power cord.
  13. There is minimal heat damage on the forward shore power inlet, replace the inlet.
  14. The inverter controller flashed an “E02” error message and the inverter does not appear to function.  Determine the cause of the error message, address appropriately and prove the inverter properly functional.
  15. The engine hour meters did not properly function.  Address as necessary or as desired.
  16. The generator’s vented loop was seen leaking onto the sound box and the hose connected to the vented loop is wasted and leaking.  Service or replace the vented loop and replace the hose, clean, dry and paint the sound box to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  17. The # 2 injector (second from forward) on the starboard engine leaked fuel during the sea trial.  Determine the cause of this leak, eliminate the leak and remove any spilled fuel to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  18. The engines took several turns to start (as opposed to starting on the first turn), the port engine took longer.  Determine the cause and significance of this condition and address appropriately.
  19. There is moisture and staining below the propeller shaft seals and they dripped during the survey.  The seals are dripless type.  Determine the cause of the dripping and address appropriately.  Dry and clean the area and components to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  20. There is moisture on both rudder ports,  determine and eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and dry and clean the area to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  21. There is corrosion on the port engine’s raw water pump and staining below it.  Determine the cause of the cause of the corrosion, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and dry and clean the components to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  22. There is minimal corrosion on the port engine’s aftercooler and moisture was seen on the aftercooler during the sea trial.  Determine the cause of the corrosion and moisture, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean and dry components to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  23. There is corrosion on the generator (likely caused by the leak at the vented loop).  Determine the cause of the corrosion (as possible), service or replace components as necessary and clean the generator to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
  24. There is no lock receiver on the aft salon sliding door or the door to the aft cabin.  Install a lock receiver to allow the doors to properly lock.
  25. Oil is present aft on the starboard engine.  Determine the cause of the oil, eliminate the cause, service or replace components as necessary and clean the area to allow detection of future weeps or leaks.
  26. The salon HVAC is inoperative, the pilothouse HVAC did not get cold and the HVAC lost its prime after the haulout.  Service the HVAC system and prove it properly functional as desired.

 

SECONDARY

 

  1. Speakers / lights have been removed from the overhang in the cockpit, reinstall speakers / lights and prove them properly functional or fill the holes as desired.
  2. There is moisture and cracking on the underside of the aft transom lockers, seen from the inside the lazarette.  Determine the significance and cause of the leaking, eliminate the cause and dry and clean the lazarette to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
