Bilge: Holding nominal water, salt crystals, stained
Comments: The vessel was inspected while hauled and afloat. The hull bottom was visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull bottom is in satisfactory – good structural condition. There are various types and sizes of blisters on the hull bottom. The largest blisters are on chine wings aft on both sides of the hull bottom. These “wings” are likely after market additions however their construction and historical details are beyond the scope of this survey. The blisters on these wings are “larger” (many over 1 ¼” in diameter) and when probed originate within what appears to be fairing compound; there are likely 100 blisters per side. There are thousands of small (less than ¼”) blisters in various areas including on the hull sides above and below the waterline, along the transom and in the propeller tunnels. There are also scattered blisters larger than ¾” in diameter, in miscellaneous locations. Several blisters were scraped and probed. The smaller blisters appear to originate within the external coatings and there is a gray barrier coating. The larger blisters appear to originate beneath the gelcoat and are wet. The hull bottom was pressure washed prior to survey; there are thousands of “barnacle bits” remaining on the hull bottom. There is a scrape on the starboard hull bottom amidships into the gelcoat; it is approximately 5’ long and longitudinally orientated. The hull sides and transom were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The hull sides and transom are in satisfactory – good structural and cosmetic condition. There is failing external coating on both transom corners, indicative of prior repairs. There are two 12” diameter areas with color differences on the starboard hull side aft. There is an unfair area inboard of the port transom door. The deck and superstructure were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The deck and superstructure are in satisfactory – good structural and satisfactory cosmetic condition. There is fiberglass damage about the lazarette hatch. There are miscellaneous areas of stress cracks; some are more significant (larger and deeper) than others. Among stress cracks noted are: transom door thresholds, aft and forward in the cockpit, swim platform, step up between the cockpit and the side decks, forward of the wing doors at the radius between the deck and superstructure, about a stanchion near the starboard wing door, foredeck, anchor locker hinges, flybridge deck edges, particularly near the sink console at the outboard radius. There is discoloration and probable prior repairs below the sliding saloon door. There have been repairs on both aft edges of the superstructure, at their connection point between the over hang and the aft superstructure bulkhead. There are cracks at this location to port which have weeping brown stains. There are weep stains down the davit tube. There are stress cracks on the starboard superstructure aft above the Ocean Alexander emblem. There is an unfair area below the window aft of the starboard wing door. There is a patch below the starboard forward port light at the deck to cabin junction. There is a circular crack just aft of the waste deck fitting to port forward. There is various cosmetic damage in the black areas on the superstructure. Gelcoat in the flybridge dinette seat lockers is failing. There are small cracks in the gelcoat about hardtop hardware. 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 good condition. There is corrosion on the aluminum hardtop support brackets, about the base of the supports. The starboard wing door threshold seal is damaged. One of the chair backs for a flybridge pedestal chair is disconnected and located in the lazarette. The flybridge dinette upholstery is damaged. There is corrosion about the windows and weathering of the window tracks and seals. The cockpit and swim platform teak decking is weathered and is likely original. Water was found accumulated on the plastic bag for a life jacket in the locker forward of the tender, on the flybridge. The structural reinforcements including the stringers and bulkheads were visually inspected and randomly sounded. The structural reinforcements appear to be in “as-built” condition. The bilge is holding minimal water; the origin of the water is beyond the scope of this survey. There are bags of “shot” used for ballast to port aft in the engine room. There is staining to starboard outboard of the engine in the engine room, about the water heater. The source and significance of this staining is beyond the scope of this survey. The shelves to port and starboard aft in the lazarette are wet and there are corroded tube clamps to starboard. There is water in the lazarette bilge. The interior cabin spaces are neat, clean and orderly. The interior of the vessel is in satisfactory cosmetic condition. The carpet is stained and in marginal condition throughout. There is water damage below the port and starboard center saloon windows. There is discoloration below the aft port light in the port cabin. There is water damage below the starboard port light in the forward cabin. There is water damage below the pilothouse windshield. There is a ding in the saloon coffee table. This survey is not a mould inspection. The condition of the coring, in the stringers, deck, and elsewhere as applicable, is beyond the scope of this inspection. There are apparent fiberglass repairs on the top aft edge of the holding tank. There is a metal vent tube to port aft in the engine room with an open end, its function is unknown. There are red hoses in the bilge throughout the vessel, they are likely intended for use with a heater; they are not currently in use.

Comments: The engines and transmissions were visually inspected and tested during a sea trial. The client had the engines and transmissions 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 engines and transmissions appear satisfactory – good. The engines were warm upon our arrival. There is corrosion outboard on the port engine, at the seawater inlet tube connection at the after cooler. The raw water hose discharging from the port engine’s oil cooler has external cracks and is at the end of its service life. The engines started and ran normally and the transmission shifted normally. The top speed of the engines was just over 2300 rpms per the tachometers and the top speed of the vessel was 26 mph, in one direction in the bay. Underway, there was water dripping out of tubes to port on each engine, the mechanic stated that these are after cooler condensate drains and the leaks are normal. The engine controls were tested from all stations and functioned normally. The exhaust system is properly arranged and installed. There are stains at the port engine exhaust system, including at a hose to tube connection and at the metal mixing elbow water injection fitting. There are also stains and salt crystals below these locations. There are stains on the starboard engine room battery box, indicating a leak on the starboard engine’s exhaust components above. The starboard engine’s exhaust hose to tube connection aft in the engine room and to starboard in the lazarette exhibit damage. There is an active water leak from this system aft in the starboard engine while underway. There is heat damaged exhaust hose at the connection to starboard aft in the engine room (between the pressure relief hose and a fiberglass tube), which is mostly inaccessible. There is significant soot in the space about this connection and due to limited accessibility the scope of damage is beyond the scope of this survey. The propulsion components including the propellers, propeller shafts, struts and shaft seals were visually inspected. The propellers were percussion tested and spun with a fixed object adjacent to the blades. The propeller shafts were manipulated in the struts and observed while underway. Overall the propulsion components are in satisfactory – good condition. There are small dings on several of the blades on both propellers. There is no sacrificial zinc anode visible on the bow thruster. There is corrosion on the trim tabs and at least one of the port tab’s fasteners is missing. The propeller shaft mounted zinc anodes are at the end of their service lives. The steering system was visually inspected and test operated. The steering system did not function normally; the wheels feel soft, particularly in the pilothouse. The steering reservoir is located to starboard aft in the engine room, it is low on pressure per the pressure gauge and it is low on fluid. There is a water leak at the starboard rudder. A recent, prior survey noted movement at the port forward steering actuator. The engine room blowers were energized. The generator was visually inspected, test operated and loaded. The generator functioned normally. We could not move the generator’s water discharge through hull valve, to port on the transom. There is corrosion on a fitting on the generator’s muffler, located to port in the lazarette. There are salt crystals on the generator’s fuel filter and about the sound box. This is likely an indication of saltwater spraying in this area, the source of the spray was not found during the survey. The through hulls were visually inspected and the valves were manipulated. The through hulls are in good condition. The seawater systems were visually inspected and most components were tested. Overall, the seawater systems are in satisfactory – good condition. The electric bilge pumps were energized with their float switches. Every bilge pump remained pumping for some time after the float switches were lowered. The manual bilge pump was not tested. There is corrosion about the seawater wash down pump and air conditioner compressors to port in the engine room. The inflatable tender is not part of the deal and was not inspected. The client has a copy of a prior survey done by the undersigned (file # 11-27097) and the broker reports none of the recommendations on that survey have been addressed.

Latches for the electrical distribution panel cover do not function properly. The anemometer sender is not spinning. Only one of the trim tab switches appears to affect the attitude of the vessel. Conductors are exposed for a large cable at a fuse holder for the thruster in the forward passageway bilge. There is no power to the AC electrical outlet in the starboard head. Two lights in the starboard head are inoperative. The light in the bow thruster bilge space is inoperative. The engine room voltmeters read 30 volts and were “pegged” underway. The client’s “boat expert”, Colin, noted that the water lights were functioning; however we were unable to determine which switch energized the lights. There are several unlabeled circuit breakers at the distribution panel, there is at least one breaker labeled with tape. There are switches which serve an unknown purpose including two switches at the pilothouse helm labeled “MMC SW”.
Summary: Satisfactory – Good
