Scope of survey
The purpose of this inspection and survey report, requested by and created for Mr. xxxxxx is
to determine insofar as possible within the limitations of visual and physical accessibility,
through non-invasive and non-destructive means, the vessel's condition at time of survey by
reporting deficiencies against the standards quoted in the "comments" section of this report
and to present the surveyor’s personal opinion as to the vessel's condition. This type of
survey is also known Pre-purchase survey. Certain parts of the structure, systems and
equipment are inaccessible without removing decks, tanks, bulkheads and headliners etc. or in
the case of cored structure, drilling core samples. This is not within the scope of this survey.
Coatings build up, corrosion, marine growth, excessive gear on board or dirt may have
hampered the surveyor’s ability to inspect. Thick layers of anti-fouling paint may inhibit
bottom inspection and therefore destructive testing is offered at additional cost.
Be advised that moisture meter readings and percussive soundings on frozen structure are not
reliable and that if a survey must be conducted under these conditions the soundings and
meter readings should be re-done at thaw. It should be noted that moisture meter readings are
relative and these meters are affected by many factors other than moisture and that percussive
sounding interpretations are subjective.
Components requiring access with tools or by disassembly are not inspected. A vessel's
systems and component parts have a limited useful life and are subject to deterioration over
time. Some conditions affecting useful life include original material specifications, fabrication
techniques, environmental exposure and history of use. These systems and component parts
often give no readily detectable external indication of deterioration or failure. Cosmetic or
comfort issues may be addressed where there is a significant effect on the value of the vessel.
Electronic and electrical equipment may be tested by powering up, only when power is
already connected. A complete analysis of the vessels electrical systems would require the
services of a qualified marine electrician. Only the external visual condition of wiring,
connections and panels is reported. The surveyor recommends that a qualified marine
mechanic inspect all engines, generators, V-drives, transmissions, sail-drives and or stern
drives regularly. Loose gear and accessories are neither inventoried nor inspected. This survey
is an opinion of the surveyor based on his knowledge, experience and following the ABYC
standards, NFDA standards and the SAMS code of ethics. Within these parameters the
surveyor will report on the hull, deck, vessel systems, running gear, cosmetic condition and
provide a valuation based on the foregoing. This is surveyor cannot predict how the vessel or
its systems will perform over time and therefore this report is valid only at time of survey.
The surveyor has made neither weight calculations nor measurements. All dimensions and
weights are from published specifications such as original brochures, the PowerBoat Guide,
Mauch’s Sailboat Guides, manufacturers or owners association web sites. Survey fees are
based on such published L.O.A.

all appears secure with no signs of separation or leakage. A few of the plastic thruhulls at the water line squirted when tapped two at the bow on port and starboard
are damaged, the ‘mushroom head’ are broken, all plastic thru-hulls deteriorate
over time due to UV rays and salt water some of the plastic thru-hulls are
fractured. The anti-fouling on the hull bottom appears in serviceable condition.
See comment B1.
Structural changes
No structural changes were noticed.
Deck to hull joint
Deck to hull joint was inspected, where visible the joint appears in serviceable condition, no
cracks, separation or sign of damage was noticed, and no signs of water intrusion were
noticed. There is limited access to inspect the hull and the joint from inside the vessel due to
panelling, cabinets etc.

Anchor(s) & rode
Anchor is a steel Delta type. The rode chain with a length of anchor line secured
to the anchor with a stainless steel swivel shackle. The chain appears in
serviceable condition. The shackle between the chain and anchor line could not be
inspected. The bitter end of the rode should be secure to a strong point on the
vessel. The anchor appears adequate for a vessel this size. The length of rode
could not be estimated.
See comment C10.
Bow thrusters
The installation is professional the area of the bilge is clean. Electrical wires are
supported. The motor has what appears to be properly sized cabling supported
along their way. Boots were at most connectors. The blades appear in serviceable
condition but have some damage at the tip. The anodes are in serviceable
condition. The bow thrusters should have a kill switch in case of emergency this
was not confirmed by the surveyor. The thrusters operated as expected.
Stern thrusters
Side thrusters, the installation is professional the area of the bilge is clean has
what appears to be properly sized cabling supported along their way.. Electrical
wires are supported. The motor has what appears to be properly sized cabling
supported along their way. The blades appear in serviceable condition but have

AC shore connection
50A shore connections located on starboard aft of the pilot house. The shore
connectors show no signs of corrosion, shorts or arching. The 50A shore power
cable shows no signs of ageing. The shore cable was clamped with a Fluke 376 true
RMS and showed some signs of current leak or fluctuation. The shore cable is
activated by a furling cable master.
G.F.C.I.
GFCI outlet was found in the vessel, one GFCI outlet per circuit. The test button tripped and
reset as expected.
Other Outlets
Other outlets throughout the boat that were sighted appear in serviceable condition.
Bonding wire
The vessel has a bonding system installed. The wire was not followed throughout the vessel,
all fittings appear to be bonded.
Battery charger
Multiple battery chargers are used for the different battery banks all appeared to be in
serviceable condition. They are not labelled to identify which battery bank they are servicing.
Generator
Kholer 20kw (2036.3hr.) is starboard side in a sound proof box. The box shows
minimum signs of corrosion. The generator was dirty with diesel soot, some
corrosion was noticed. That unit was started and generated 110V. The drip pan
has some rust. The impeller does not appear to have been inspected or change
recently paint covers the nut heads with not a scratch on them. The belts appear
loose and older. All hoses were flexible when squeezed.
DC electrical system

Ship’s batteries
Multiple batteries banks are serviced by the battery chargers and the alternators.
The house battery comprises of Davidson 8D 12VDC deep cycle batteries. Three
pairs of 6VDC Interstate lead acid in series to provide 12VDC service the inverter.
The one of the six volts battery has it cap removed and the battery vented inside
the wooden box, this is battery acid and should be handled with caution, some of
the cabling exposed to the acid show signs of corrosion. This battery bank should
be tested after being cleaned, remember the batteries will adjust to the weakest
battery in the bank. The wire connections are made using proper nuts or wing nuts.
The batteries are in wood box or battery boxes with covers and the boxes are not
secure, this would not meet ABYC standards. There are no boots over the battery
post. Battery switches are located in the engine room original equipment and
appear in serviceable condition. Starting batteries are 8D type.
See comment B4.
Inverter
The vessel is equipped with an inverter that was not tested. The inverter battery bank should
be inspected, cleaned and repaired before testing the inverter to prevent possible damage to
the batteries.
Electronic, Navigational Equipment
Engine controls
The engine controls are original at the main helm and on the flybridge, control worked as
expected.
Rudder controls
Hynautic type hydraulic system, no signs of leaks were noticed. The controlling
arms are secure. The rudder posts and mounts appear secure, no cracks or signs of
damage on the rudder posts that could be inspected.
Stabilzer
The vessel is equipped with Wesmar stabilization system the
system powered-up but due to calm sea in the harbour it was
not possible to fully test the unit. The foils appear in
serviceable condition with no movement at the shafts.

Navigation Lights
Navigation lights, located port starboard and stern, and the anchor light appear in working
order.
Electronics
All units and their repeaters on the fly bridge powered-up and appeared in working order.
Sea connections
Bilge & bilge pumps
All bilges were relatively dry. A high water alarm was not found on this vessel,
this should be confirmed. All pumps appear to be in serviceable condition. Bilge
pumps should be wired to be readily available in any situation. The bilge pumps
that were sighted are in working condition. The exact capacity could not be read
due to marking fading with time. Ensure that limber-holes are always clear of
debris so water that reach the closest bilge pump.
See comment C11.
Thru-hulls and seacocks
Some seacocks were difficult to work.
See comment C12.
Safety equipment
Safety equipment that is not integral to the vessel or permanently installed has not
been inventoried or inspected by the surveyor. The Transport Canada “Safe
Boating Guide” TP5111E, should be consulted for requirements specific to the
vessel.
The vessel should comply with the regulations for the area
in which it is intended to be used. Fire extinguishers that
were sighted are due for inspection. Some life vests were
sighted. Carbon monoxide detectors were noticed and
appear in working order. Flares are expired. The liferaft
located on the fly bridge is due for inspection

Comments
Comments based on a specific authority are cited as such. Other comments are based on the
opinion of the surveyor as being of "good marine practice".
A: Issues in need of immediate attention.
n/a
B: Issues that may enhance safety and/or value of vessel.
B1. Bronze thru-hulls and other bronze underwater fittings should not remain painted with
anti-fouling. The anti-fouling paint contains copper and other biocide, we now have copper
and bronze in contact, when we immerse them in water (an electrolyte) we have an anode and
a cathode and possibility of galvanic corrosion has been introduced, it is minuscule but why
not avoid it. Replace thru-hulls at the water line that are damaged and monitor all thru-hulls at
the waterline, bronze thru-hull fitted with seacocks are the preferred method of replacement.
The only reason this is not a ‘B’ recommendation is due to the fact the broker agreed to have
these replaced before a sales is concluded.
B2. The underwater LEDs were tested only the port side is working. Anodes should be
inspected regularly and replaced as necessary the anodes currently used are zincs adequate for
salt water. The galvanic connection between the anodes and the part they are protecting
should be inspected, the metal to metal connection should be cleaned to insure proper
conductivity. A re-boarding ladder deployable from the water should be installed (in can be
installed under the swim platform) this is an ABYC requirement.
ABYC standards H41 section 9.1 state:
Means of unassisted reboarding shall be provided on all boats, and must be accessible to, or deployable by
the person in the water.
41.9.2 Reboarding ladders mounted on the stern of boats shall be installed as far as practicable from the
propeller(s).
41.9.3 The top surface of the lowest step of a reboarding ladder, if installed to meet the requirement of this
standard, shall be at least 12 inches (304.8 mm) below the waterline with the boat in the static floating
position.
41.9.5 The strength of a reboarding means, and its attachment to the boat, shall comply with H-41.8.2.
B3. A fire suppression system is the better solution should be considered. At the minimum
ABYC standards A4, section 4.5.2.2 state:
A single suitably sized clean agent portable fire extinguisher provided and installed in proximity to a port to
permit discharge directly into the engine compartment without opening the primary access. (See Table IV for
determination of the minimum portable clean agent fire extinguisher size for this usage.)… ‘is acceptable’.

B4. The use of wing-nuts is prohibited with wire this size carrying that much amperage, four
wires on one terminal is the maximum permitted, a better arrangement would be the use of a
bus bars where applicable. Boots should be over the terminals to prevent possible dead short
if a spanner or other tool is dropped on a battery. Again please refer to ABYC E-11AC and
DC electrical systems on boats.
E-11 (partial):
10.7.7 To prevent accidental contact of the ungrounded battery connection to ground, each battery shall be
protected so that metallic objects cannot come into contact with the ungrounded battery terminal and
uninsulated cell straps. This may be accomplished by means such as:
10.7.7.1 Covering the ungrounded battery terminal with a boot or non-conductive shield, or
10.7.7.2 Installing the battery in a covered battery box, or
10.7.7.3 Installing the battery in a compartment specially designed only for the battery(s).
10.8.3 Battery cables and other conductors size 6 AWG (13.3 mm²) and larger shall not be connected to the
battery with wing nuts.
10.8.4 Multiple conductors connected to a battery shall be installed with the highest ampacity conductor
terminal closest to the battery, followed by successively smaller ampacity conductor terminals.
10.8.4.1 A maximum of four conductor terminals shall be permitted to be installed on a single battery stud .
NOTE: Terminal insulation or battery covers do not provide compliance with this requirement since,
during installation or removal of a battery, these protective devices are usually removed in order to
connect the cables.
B5. The boat should be compliant with CCG and TC TP511E, these are minimum
requirements for flares, horn, lifejackets, etc. The vessel should be compliant with the
regulations for the water in which it will operate. Labels requirement in the USA is slightly
different then in Canada. A label should be affixed at the AC / DC panel indicating that an
inverter might be energizing the vessel, this is an ABYC requirement and a USCG
requirement.
C: Offered for information or suggested as maintenance or upgrades.
C1. The cracks in the gelcoat should be opened and new gelcoat should be applied. Try
colour matching in a less obvious location first.
C2. Shore pressure water fittings have fallen out of fashion for the very good reason that
if the boat water system is pressurized by the shore water supply the water pressure is
usually much higher than under the ship’s system, in the event of the failure of a
component of the vessel’s water system the vessel will be filled with an endless supply
of fresh, potable water. If the fitting is to be used at all make certain that the latest safest
automatic shutoff system is installed and never leave the vessel unattended with the shore
water pressure valve at the dock in the open position.

C3.The gel-coat on the cabin top and other non-walking areas could be polished with a cutpaste like 3M finesse or other similar product, two or three coats of hard wax could be
applied for UV protection and a few coats of liquid wax could then be applied for shine and
as sacrificial coats. This enhances the beauty of the vessel but also protects the gel-coat from
oxidization. The leak from the ‘Bomar’ type hatch should be investigated further and the
situation remedied.
C4. The sliding hatch from the aft staircase is difficult to operate this should be investigated
further and adjusted to operate properly. It does not appear to be possible to operate the
zippers of the ‘Sunbrella enclosure from outside the enclosure. The bar fridge has moulds on
the seal area and will need to be cleaned.
C5. The wheel helm custom box should be clamped, re-glued and revarnished. The chrome
could be cleaned with product like ‘Never Dull’ this to prevent pitting and the need for refinishing. These two conditions are likely due to the boat not being used and humidity level
getting high in the vessel. It is the opinion of your surveyor that the vessel should go through
a period of time with heathers/ air conditioning and possible dehumidifier running to dry the
wood paneling and accessories as well as carpeting and furniture.
C6. Water maker contain filtration membrane if the water maker is not used these filter can
get clog attempting to test the system with a clogged filter can burn the pump. The filter
should be replaced and the system tested. It is good practice from time to time to clean and
sanitize the water tanks and cold and hot water systems. The systems must first be emptied,
cleaned or rinse thoroughly and finally sanitized, this can be done using Sodium
metabisulphite or potassium metabisulphite that can usually be bought at home making wine
and beer stores it usually comes in the form of a pink powder. Mix the powder with water
according to directions pour into the water system, fill-up the system and tanks with water
open the taps for a few seconds so the mixtures flows through all the pipes and then rinse, the
system is now clean of all possible bacteria.

C7. It is good marine practice to write the date and engine hrs directly on the oil filters..
Routine maintenance should be performed as per Volvo recommendations. Oil in a diesel
engine if mixed with diesel fuel creates toxic acidic substance that eats the metal in the
engine. Diesel engine oil has more additives per volume, the most prevalent are over base
detergent additives. This additive has several jobs, but the main ones are to neutralize acids
and clean. ‘Dirty’ oil also has small abrasive particles in suspension in the oil, these particles
literally act like sand-paper inside your engine. Finally ‘dirty’ oil has moisture in it and forms
sludge at the bottom of the engine crankcase. Only use oil specified for diesel engines and
meeting the Volvo recommendations, look for the API (American Petroleum Institute)
doughnut logo on the bottle. In the top section of this doughnut will be a service designation.
This designation will either start with an “S” (spark ignition) for gasoline engines or a “C”
(compression ignition) for diesel engines. I suggest that the impeller be checked every year
and if possible replaced at the same time since they do dry-up, keeping a replacement onboard is also a good marine practice. Marking the oil filters with the date of the oil change is
good marine practice. Using an oil absorbent mat under the engines, collect any fluid dripping
and give an indication of location and type of fluid leaking they absorbs oils, fuels and
petroleum-based products but repels water. A starting alarm is recommended, the surveyor
does not recall one being installed, the duration of the alarm also serves as a wait time when
glow plugs are used.
C8. The fitting should be cleaned and the fitting could be brushed with some diluted baking
soda, the soda will neutralize the acidity.
C9. Remember, ’there are two nuts holding the propeller on the shaft: A full-height nut and
half-height locknut. Which nut goes directly against the propeller hub? Most boats have it
wrong, with the full-height nut against the prop. It seems intuitive that the larger nut against
the prop would be doing most of the work and that the smaller nut should go on second. In
fact, the smaller nut should always go against the load. This is because when the second,
outer nut is tightened down, it compresses and deforms the lower nut a tiny bit, and rotates
the lower nut a fraction of a turn. This effectively unloads the threads of the lower nut and
engages the threads of the upper nut. Thus the top or outer nut actually takes all the load. You
can search an illustration from Engineering Drawing and Design (by Jensen/Helsel, McGraw
Hill, 1985) that shows how this is standard practice for all lock nuts; and an illustration from
SAE standard J756 and J755, for propeller shafts, which clearly shows the half-height nut
against the hub. If you go to any marina with the boats hauled in winter, 99% of the prop nuts
will be on the wrong way. I wouldn’t worry too much about the nuts being on backwards. It
has proven sufficient, but you might as well put them on correctly next time you install a
prop. Dave Gerr". The struts have been painted with antifouling, it is the opinion of your
surveyor that they should not be painted unless a coat of paint is first apply to separate the
antifouling paint that contain copper from entering in contact with the bronze struts, when
immerse in water (an electrolyte) this created a possible electrical currant, the paint also
prevent inspection for dezincification of the bronze.

C10. Confirm that the bitter end of the rode is secure to what can be considered a strong point
on the vessel. The shackle should be moused with proper seizing wires.
C11. 'The most common mistake in wiring pumps is to wire them after the shutoff switch''…
the FRCS guideline is to wire the pump-circuits and any alarm circuit to the “battery-side” of
a battery-switch (as to avoid the bilge-pump circuit from being disconnected …as one shuts
off the battery switch). The circuit to the automatic switch should remain active regardless…
even when the battery switches are turned off (most quality vessels are wired in this manner).
This can easily be accomplished by a dedicated power-supply coming from either the batteryside of the main battery distribution switch and/or separate buss for just those items (alarms &
bilge-pumps) providing them with circuit protection at the source and then for each device
(providing separate bilge-pump switches, with their own circuit protection. The small bilge
pumps in the engine room represents a minimalist approach to removing water from the
vessel.
Note I. Water intrusion from a small 1” seacock located in the hull 3 ft below the physical
water line will invite 34g/min aboard a vessel. That is 2040g/hr (Naval Sea System
Command, US Navy sailor’s handbook ISBN 0-87033-248-1). That is usually more than most
submersible pumps that are installed in small vessels can handle.
Note II. Nothing good ever comes from water in the bilge.
Note III. There is no better bilge pump than a scared sailor with a bucket.
C12. Seacocks should be worked regularly to prevent them from gripping and seizing.
Note1. With more and more AC current used on boats the risk of encountering stray current
has dramatically increased in recent years. The use of a galvanic isolator or isolation
transformer practically eliminates this risk to your vessel. If a leak is found it could be
coming from a nearby boat, if the vessel is moved to a different location check the AC shore
cable for electrical current leak that could indicate that the leak is coming from this vessel or
a nearby one.
Note2. The use of an ELCI in the AC shore power is now part of the ABYC Standards
recommendation it is a wise addition if the items in Note1 are not implemented.

Standards used
Standards used are the most current editions and may not have been in place when this vessel
was built.
ABYC standards are voluntary but generally accepted throughout the marine pleasure craft
industry and counts as the reference standard. Transport Canada “Construction Standards for
Small Vessels, TP1332 are mandatory to the date of manufacture and states "existing pleasure
craft shall comply with this standard insofar as it is reasonable and practicable to do so".
TP1332 frequently refers to and is in the process of being harmonized with ABYC Standards.
Compliance with “Collision Regulations” is mandatory. NFPA 302 is a voluntary standard.
Standards quoted may have been paraphrased in the interest of brevity. A 100% accurate
survey to the aforementioned standards would require complete disassembly of the vessel and
inspection by several specialists and is not within the scope of this report. Canada Shipping
Act, CSA Small Vessel Regulations. TP127 "Ships Electrical Systems". TP10739B
"International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, ed.1972 with Canadian
Modifications".
American Boat and Yacht Council "Standards and Technical Information Reports for Small
Craft". National Fire Protection Association. NFPA302 "Fire Protection Standard for Pleasure
and Commercial Motor Craft" might be referred to as necessary.

Valuation
Valuation is primarily determined through www.yachtworld.com and others but may also be
derived from consultation with knowledgeable boat brokers, other marine surveyors, personal
experience, current listings of similar vessels in the area and available pricing sources such as
Computer Boat Value Guide, N.A.D.A. Marine Appraisal Guide or the BUC Value Guide.
Boat values vary considerably due to local market demands and premiums may be paid for
fresh water vessels in exceptional condition. Currency conversion is done on date of survey
using www.xe.com Universal Currency Converter. Valuations do not include taxes.
Vessel condition
The vessel ‘HIN xxxxxxxx, surveyed on, is in “Average’’ condition.
Fair market value
"Current fair market value" is the price, in terms of currency or its equivalent that a willing
seller will accept for property from a willing buyer, neither part being under undue pressure to
act in the matter. The assigned value assumes that components, systems, sails or equipment
not inspected during the survey are in serviceable condition commensurate with age. This
valuation opinion is intended for insurance and financing purposes. The surveyor has no
interest in the vessel financially or otherwise.
The current fair market value is: $xyz,00.USD*.
* This valuation considers that the damaged thru-hulls will be replaced to the satisfaction of
Mr. Stewart Christensen, that the davit and inverter will be tested and proven to be in working
order. The tender and its outboard are not part of this valuation.

Marine grading system of condition
The following is the accepted marine grading system of condition used:
“BRISTOL CONDITION”
Vessel is maintained in mint or Bristol fashion,
loaded with extras. Maintenance is performed as
‘restoration’ projects – a rarity.
“ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION”
Has had above average care and is equipped with
extra gear. Maintenance is done as ‘improvement’.
AVERAGE CONDITION”
Ready for sale requiring no additional work and
normally equipped for its size. Maintenance is
done as 'repair of faults'.
“FAIR CONDITION”
Requires usual maintenance to prepare for sale.
“BELOW AVERAGE CONDITION”
Yard work required and/or maintenance previously
performed was sub-standard.
“RESTORABLE CONDITION”
Enough of hull and engine exists to restore the
boat to usable condition.
