Understanding the Marine Survey

Marine surveyors have a specific job to do. It's a closer look at what the Marine survey is why it is important to get one.

Most people in the boating industry are familiar with the Marine survey. The survey is quite important and they have specific benefits to offer. There are specific things that you should consider before you get your next survey done, to ensure you get the best results possible.

First, you should know who to hire to do the survey. You should find a qualified marine surveyor that work on a strict code of ethics to provide you with accurate survey results.

You can search online for a list of qualified surveyors that are listed according to their expertise or according to a specific location.

Remember not to rush the process too much. Many people want it done as soon as possible, but delays can happen. These surveys are often conducted outside and weather can be a concern. There can be other delays as well, so keep this in mind.

Always thoroughly prepare for your survey. Be sure that your vessel is properly prepared as not all surveyors use tools to remove panels, etc.

Remove all unnecessary gear from the vessel and make sure the vessel is clean, including compartments and other spaces. It may sound obvious but it's important.

Also be available during the inspection. You can be there to answer questions or assist with things that might be an issue while the surveyor is there. Make yourself available by phone as well.
