A Note From Paul:
As a full time marine surveyor, I dedicate all of my time to make sure you receive a very thorough survey, with experience. I consider myself fortunate enough to be able to do this year round with repeat customers and numerous referrals. This has allowed me to see a wide range of issue's that develop over time on a vessel. Often called Aging of the Fleet. There are still very nice older boats operating today that have been properly maintained. For example as fiberglass boats age over time certain structural and cosmetic issue's develop. It is extremely important to be able to discern between the two. So you see gelcoat cracks on decks. Can this be a hint that the core material below is wet or simply just some flexing by through deck fittings. Or even just some excessive gelcoat at a radius. Percussion sounding and moisture testing is standard to make this decision. Getting the correct diagnosis is critical. Another example is tabbing that separates or cracks is critical to determining the vessels structural integrity. You need to determine how far it goes. This will be the first step in determining the extent of the repair and weather to purchase the vessel.
These are just some of the examples of the many systems and structure on the vessel that are surveyed. As a full time marine surveyor you will receive my full time knowledge and attention to your survey. Whether you are buying a small dinghy or a large power or sailing yacht you receive the exact same attention to detail.
