During the Survey
One of our surveyors will arrive at the vessel’s location before the appointed time to ensure that the vessel is where it is supposed to be, that access is available to the vessel and that the vessel is in a safe condition to survey. Some preparatory work by the owner / broker at this stage will make for a much more effective survey. Lockable hatches should be unlocked, the vessel’s inventory should be removed, cupboards should be emptied and any other measures to assist the surveyor in getting to / at the hull interior.
“Time spent emptying the sail locker is time not spent surveying!”
