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 cold molded custom sailboat equipped with a diesel engine and a diesel generator. The vessel is unique in many aspects. The current owner built the vessel and stated that the design was borrowed from a book of designs, and an engineer, Bill Davidson, drew the scantlings from the design. The design is based on a late 1700s / early 1800s Gloucester fishing schooner. The client built the vessel from these designs over 29 years (ten year hiatus). The hull is made of seven layers of 3/8 inch plywood with epoxy and silicone bronze ring nail fastenings. The exterior of the hull has been encased in fiberglass and the interior of the hull has been encased in fiberglass to the waterline. The deck and superstructure are constructed of plywood and fiberglass. The masts, booms, bow sprit and several other components were made by Bill Clarke, a San Diego area shipwright. The propulsion system is a hydraulic system driven off the main engine. The vessel is well designed and built and the client stated he became a shipwright in 1957 and has worked in the marine industry since.
The client stated that he documented the vessel as having its keel laid in 1984 and launched the vessel on May 5th, 2005. The client has lived aboard the vessel since it was launched. In addition to hydraulic propulsion, the vessel has a hydraulic system which controls the bow and stern thrusters, windlass and a deck winch.
The vessel is currently hauled for bottom paint. The vessel is structurally sound and suitable for its intended purpose as a coastal cruising vessel.

|ACTUAL CASH VALUE||NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE||INVESTMENT|
|Removed for privacy|
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 vessel is a custom vessel and thus the value is to a large extent based on the surveyor’s experience and comparing it to what the surveyor believes would be the type and quality of comparable vessels included in the soldboats.com reported sale prices and the yachtworld.com listing prices below. The most comparable vessel is the 2005 French and Web custom that reportedly sold for $990,000 in May, 2021 in Bainbridge Island, Washington. However, it was built by a known builder and is much newer. This boat compares in the type of boat and construction quality as the boats in the range of value listed.

This survey is for the express purpose of insurance. 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.|
- Maintain the fixed and portable fire extinguishers per NFPA recommendations. Extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years.
- Provide federally required, approved and current distress signal flares.
- Replace the battery in the EPIRB. Maintain the EPIRB per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Provide a mast head / steaming light to comply with federal and international requirements.
- Test and prove the propane alarm, service if / as necessary. It was not tested. Assure the “fire place” is designed for this application, is approved by the manufacturer for installation in vessels and its use complies with ABYC and NFPA recommendations.
- Service the engine for salt crystals on the heat exchanger and oil on the engine surface. Eliminate the causes, address deficiencies illuminated by these conditions and clean to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
- Replace the low pressure hose on the small PTO on the engine, it is an exhaust / water hose that is carrying oil and is wet with oil.
- Address the water weep at the engine’s exhaust mixing elbow. Eliminate the weep / leak and clean staining and corrosion at and below this location to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
- Replace the handle on the through hull valve supplying the sea chest and prove the valve properly functional.
- Service and prove the salon bilge pump functional, it did not function with its float switch. The bilge pumps are all equipped with boost pumps, assure that the boost pumps are all functional as an inoperative pump in line will diminish the volume of water. Assure compliance with ABYC recommendations.
- Service corrosion on the sea chest and related components. Eliminate any weeps and leak and remove corrosion to allow detection of any future weeps or leaks.
