I. INTRODUCTION
SCOPE OF SURVEY
Acting with the permission of Ed Bigby, Tom Streelman and Billie Streelman did an ''Out-of-Water'' marine survey of the
1994 64' Jamestowner, "Nauti Nuf Time" on December 12, 2007 from 1030 to 1250. The survey was conducted
onboard the vessel at Triple L Marine yard, Page AZ. The reason for the survey was to ascertain the physical condition
and value of the vessel.
The vessel was surveyed without removal of any parts; including fittings, tacked carpet, screwed or nailed boards,
anchors and chain, fixed partitions, instruments, clothing, spare parts and miscellaneous materials in the bilges and
lockers, or other fixed or semi-fixed items. Locked compartments or otherwise inaccessible areas also precluded
inspection. The use of the word ''appears'' is intended to indicate that a close or complete inspection was not possible or
it was not deemed appropriate at the time of this survey.
The electronics, appliances, and water systems were not tested.
A sea trial was not performed. No reference or information should be construed to indicate evaluation of the internal
condition of the engines or the operating capacity of the vessel's propulsion systems. It is recommended and understood
that all gas engines be surveyed by a qualified Engine Surveyor to determine the condition of the engines, gears, pumps,
cooling systems, and fuel systems. Further, no determination of stability characteristics or inherent structural integrity has
been made and no opinion is expressed with respect thereto.
The mandatory standards promulgated by the United States Coast Guard (USCG), under the authority of Title 46 United
States Code (USC) and Title 33 And Title 46, Code Of Federal Regulations (CFR), and the voluntary standards and
recommended practices developed by the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) and the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) have been used as guidelines in the conduct of this survey.
Use of asterisks * in the body of the report will indicate that a finding pertaining to the asterisked item will be listed in the
Findings and Recommendations section following the body of the report.
The deficiencies reported herein reflect the conditions observed at the time the survey was conducted. This survey report
represents the condition of the vessel on the above date, and is the unbiased opinion of the undersigned, but it is not to
be considered an inventory or a warranty either specified or implied.

RECOMMENDATIONS
Recommend resecuring/resealing stanchions.
Propane tanks, valves, safety devices, and regulating
equipment shall be secured for sea conditions (ABYC
A-1.12). Recommend securing tank.
Recommend repair to prevent further deterioration.
It is highly recommended that owners contact the vessel or
item manufacturers for more information.
All hinged hatches shall have a means or method to keep
the hatch in an open position (ABYC H-3.4.11). Recommend
installation of a safety rope on each hatch so it can be
secured open in adverse conditions. Recommend replacing
weak shocks.
ABYC 11.15.1.1.1 -- Receptacles installed in locations
subject to rain, spray, or splash shall be weatherproof when
on in use. NOTE: Weatherproofing may be provided by
means such as spring-loaded, self-closing, or snap-type
receptacle covers. Recommend replacement.
Recommend further investigation and repair as necessary.
At least once a year, a full maintenance check should be
made by a qualified fire extinguishing service facility in
accordance with the maintenance instructions on the name
plate of the extinguisher. A tag should be attached showing
the date of such maintenance check (ABYC A-4.Ap.5.4.2).
Recommend having current-tagged fire extinguishers
aboard. It is good marine practice to have a fire extinguisher
located in the cuddy area.
The USCG requires that vessel's documentation be kept on
board (46 CFR 67.313) and that vessel's endorsements be
renewed (46 CFR 67.317). Recommend having current
paperwork on board.

FINDINGS
C.10 (PAGE 8)
"No Oil Discharge" placard not sighted on board.
RECOMMENDATIONS
The USCG requires vessels over 26' to post a placard of at
least 5" x 8" in the machinery space stating the following (33
CFR 155.450):
DISCHARGE OF OIL PROHIBITED
The Federal Water Pollution Control Act prohibits the
discharge of oil or oily waste into or upon the navigable
waters of the United States or the waters of the contiguous
zone if such discharge causes a film or sheen upon or a
discoloration of the surface of the water or causes a sludge
or emulsion beneath the surface of the water. Violators are
subject to a penalty of $5,000.
Recommend installing a decal or placard in the engine
compartment.

V. SUMMARY AND VALUATION
STATEMENT OF OVERALL VESSEL RATING OF CONDITION:
It is the surveyor's experience that develops an opinion of the OVERALL VESSEL RATING OF CONDITION after the survey has been
completed and the findings have been organized in a logical manner.
The grading of condition, developed by BUC RESEARCH, and accepted in the marine industry, for a vessel at the time of survey,
determines the adjustment to the range of base values in the BUC USED BOAT PRICE GUIDE, for a similar vessel sold within a given
time period, as a consideration to determine the Market Value.
The following is the accepted marine grading system of condition:
''EXCELLENT (BRISTOL) CONDITION'', is a vessel that is maintained in mint or bristol fashion - usually better than factory
new - loaded with extras - a rarity.
''ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION'', has had above average care and is equipped with extra electronics and gear.
''AVERAGE CONDITION'', ready for sale requiring no additional work and normally equipped for her size.
''FAIR CONDITION'', requires usual maintenance to prepare for sale.
''POOR CONDITION'', substantial yard work required and devoid of extras.
''RESTORABLE CONDITION'', enough of hull and engine exists to restore the boat to usable condition.
As a result of my investigation, as shown in the SYSTEMS AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS section of this REPORT OF
SURVEY, and by virtue of my experience, my opinion is
OVERALL VESSEL RATING:
Average
STATEMENT OF VALUATION:
1. The ''FAIR MARKET VALUE'' is the most probable price in terms of money which a vessel should bring in a competitive and open
market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale.
Implicit in this definition is the consummation of a sale as of a specified date and the passing of title from seller to buyer under
conditions whereby:
a. Buyer and seller are typically motivated.
b. Both parties are well informed or well advised, and each acting in what they consider their own best interest.
c. A reasonable time is allowed for exposure in the open market.
d. Payment is made in terms of cash in U.S. dollars or in terms of financial arrangements comparable thereto; and
e. The price represents a normal consideration for the vessel sold unaffected by special or creative financing or sales
concessions granted by anyone associated with the sale.
Therefore, after consideration of the reliability of the data, the extent of the necessary adjustments, the condition of the vessel, and
predicated on the assumption that engines, machinery, electronics, and appliances are in working order, it is your surveyor's opinion
that the ''FAIR MARKET VALUE'' of the subject vessel is:
$94,000.00
Ninety Four Thousand Dollars and Zero cents
2. The ''ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT COST'' indicates the retail cost of a new vessel of the same make/model with similar equipment
offered by the same manufacturer. If the manufacturer is no longer in business, the retail cost of a new vessel of a similar type with
similar equipment from another manufacturer is used. ''ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT COST'' of the subject vessel is:
$225,000.00
Two Hundred Twenty Five Thousand Dollars and Zero cents
