NOLEN'S MARINE SURVEYING, INC

Pre-Survey

Getting Ready for your Survey

Time and additional expenses can be saved by preparing the vessel for inspection and making her more accessible.

Arrange to present a clean, shipshape boat, and have all papers and miscellaneous gear ready. If applicable, you will need to make arrangements with the marina to haul the vessel for bottom inspection and a captain for sea trial. Lockers and cabin areas should be cleared of all miscellaneous gear. The surveyor should never be asked to prepare a boat for inspection. All systems should be fully commissioned prior to your surveyor's arrival. Random inspection of fasteners on wood boats below water line should be examined for condition. Any dismantling and re-installation of these parts should be performed by qualified personnel, which is the responsibility of the person ordering the survey. Written authorization from the owner may be needed to board and/or to remove any part of the vessel.

ONCE YOU RETAIN THE SURVEYOR,

HE OR SHE WORKS ONLY FOR YOU

AND REPORTS TO NO ONE ELSE.

THE SURVEYOR IS THERE TO
