How To Prepare Boat For A Marine Survey

When it comes to ensuring the safety and seaworthiness of your vessel, there’s no room for compromise. At Lawson Marine Surveyors, we understand the importance of a thorough boat survey, and we are committed to providing you with the highest level of expertise and service. Let us walk you through the essential steps on how to prepare for a boat survey.

Preparing for Your Boat Survey

Here are the crucial steps for preparing for your boat survey:

  • Gather Documentation

Before the survey, compile all relevant documentation, including maintenance records, service history, and any previous survey reports. This information will provide valuable insights into your boat’s history and maintenance.

  • Clear Access

Ensure that the surveyor has unobstructed access to all areas of your vessel. Remove any clutter or personal belongings to facilitate a thorough inspection.

  • Be Present

While our surveyors are highly skilled, your presence during the survey is valuable. Feel free to accompany our surveyor, ask questions, and gain insights into your boat’s condition.

  • Prepare for Sea Trials

If a sea trial is part of your survey, make the necessary arrangements, including scheduling and ensuring the boat is in operational condition.

  • Safety First

Prioritize safety during the survey. Ensure that safety equipment such as life jackets, fire extinguishers, and emergency signals are readily accessible and in good working order.

By following these steps and entrusting your boat survey to Lawson Marine Surveyors, you are taking a proactive approach to safeguarding your vessel and ensuring peace of mind on the water.
