We make every effort to have the survey report available the next business day.  Our surveys include an easily referenced list of all issues found, our recommendations, and the fair-market valuation of the vessel.  Photos taken during the survey are included throughout the report.  More information and a sample survey can be found in survey info.

   For both both types of survey there is an additional charge of $2 per foot for wooden or steel vessels due to their added complexity.  We generally waive mileage charges for San Francisco Bay.  Trips to the Delta and Peninsula are billed at $0.50/mile.

We are also available to consult on an hourly basis on a variety of boat-related topics.  We draw from a wide range of experience inspecting, building, teaching and operating many types of water crafts.  Topics could include: coastal or offshore passage preparation, or buyer assistance to select the most appropriate boat and/or gear for an intended use.  Please call for more information and rates.
