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.

Overall Summary:  Satisfactory – Good 


Standard form key:     We use subsection and overall ratings to summarize conditions found, based upon their appearance.  Ratings include: Not examined, Not applicable, Faulty, Marginal, Satisfactory, Good, Excellent.

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 for commercial fishing boats is difficult to establish.  Most are sold privately and very little data is available.  They are often sold as a business with the sale price being tied to the production, but this is not a valuation method which we are able to perform (business valuation).  The vessel is in exceptionally good condition for a commercial fishing vessel and is valued at the top of the range for this type of vessel due to its condition.

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. Several of the fire extinguishers are currently out for service, maintain fire extinguishers per NFPA recommendations.  Extinguishers should be inspected and tagged annually and inspected by a qualified technician or replaced every six years.   Reinstall the extinguishers after service.
  2. The life raft is currently out for service, maintain the life raft and the hydrostatic release per the manufacturers’ recommendations.  Reinstall the liferaft after service.
  3. The vessel does not currently have personal flotation devices, there are immersion suits aboard.  We encourage proving type I PFDs and a suitable throwable type PFD with retrieving line, smoke and light signals attached.
  4. There is oil leaking into both generators’ electrical ends, eliminate the cause and remove oil.
  5. There are fuel leaks at both generators, eliminate the fuel leaks.
  6. There is a coolant leak at the starboard generator, eliminate the coolant leak.
  7. There is a fuel leak in the center aft engine room bilge, eliminate the leak and clean any fuel.
  8. There are issues with the fishing rigging, including the starboard forward support which has been covered with splash zone which is lifting from the deck and isolated spots of corrosion on the steel tubes, inspect the entire rig, service and prove it suitable for its intended use.
  9. There were a few electronic alarms during the survey and testing of equipment and the client stated his intention to have the satellite antenna replace with a fleet 1 unit providing Inmarsat, assure this is completed and address alarms appropriately.
  10. Modify the Certificate of Documentation or the transom so the hailing port on both match.


  1. There is currently a list to port, the client said this is due to recent cleaning of the day fuel tanks and an imbalance in the fuel level, assure the vessel is leveled.
  2. There is corrosion above the main engine, some of the deck plating has been cut away and a plywood patch is visible from below.  This is likely caused by water being trapped between foam insulation and the steel, address this problem locally and universally as appropriate.
  3. There is an area of corrosion visible on the interior of the hull to port of the rudder, upon next haul out remove all loose corrosion, determine the extent of corrosion and address appropriately.
  4. There is a water leak into the port pilothouse locker, modify to eliminate the water leak.
  5. The AIS is currently not secured because service is underway, upon completion of the service properly secure the AIS.
