Scope of Services

The vessel was examined by the 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.

The vessel is a fiberglass over plywood passenger fishing vessel equipped with two diesel engines and a diesel generator.  The vessel was reportedly commissioned by Bob Fletcher and built by Moyer in Hermosa Beach, CA.  The vintage 2011 engines were reportedly installed in 2012 – 13.  The client purchased the vessel in 2019 from Seaforth Sportfishing dock in Mission Bay, San Diego, CA.  The undersigned was involved in an insurance claim recently filed on this vessel, primarily related to failure of the starboard forward bulwarks.  The repairs were performed to the satisfaction of the Coast Guard, and other reinforcements were added, including a new frame in the engine room.  Repairs to the port bulwarks had been performed previously.  The vessel was inspected underway and at the dock in San Diego Bay.  The vessel is actively in use as a passenger fishing vessel.  The vessel is basically structurally sound and suitable for its intended purpose as a passenger fishing vessel.  The vessel holds a U.S. Certificate of Inspection for 49 passengers in extended ocean zone 1.

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 roughly based on the soldboats.com reported sale prices, the listings found on various sites and our in-house data base.  The value is our opinion of what the vessel would sell for in its current location and operating as a business.  While we do not appraise businesses, the comparable sales are mostly sold as businesses and thus the business value is inextricably linked.

This survey is for the express purpose of insurance and/or financing.  It is not meant as a buyer’s survey.




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.



  1. Service and prove the man overboard strobe functional, it did not illuminate.
  2. The vessel uses a line drum on the windlass but a chain rode, exercise caution or consider modifying the windlass with a chain drum.
  3. Replace the missing bolt for the port engine’s exhaust riser strap.
  4. Eliminate the water leak from the seawater pump to port forward in the engine room.
  5. Service and prove the stern light properly functional, it did not illuminate.


  1. Seawater hoses are in contact with the engines’ turbo chargers, the string previously used to support the port hose is broken.  Modify to eliminate contact between the hoses and the turbo chargers.
  2. We could not move the through hull valves for the seawater pump inboard forward of the port engine or the starboard engine intake, service and prove the valves properly functional.
  3. There is deterioration of metal and plywood about the upper rudder bearings, minor play in the steering linkage (primarily at the bolt between the actuator and the port rudder arm) and deterioration of the plywood backing plate below the steering actuator connection.  Service these components appropriately.
  4. The end fitting on the starboard transmission control cable is loose, reattach the cable.


This survey sets forth the condition of the vessel and components, as specifically stated only, at the time of inspection and represents the surveyor’s honest and unbiased opinion.  No part of the vessel was disassembled or removed and no assumptions should be made as to the condition of concealed components.  Specifics were obtained from sources available at the time of inspection and are believed correct, but are not guaranteed to be accurate.
