FOR YACHT SURVEYS
Below, please find some more information on services which can be booked either as part of a Pre-Purchase Survey or as a “standalone” check.
With the introduction of higher quality isophthalic and vinyl ester resins in the production of GRP boats, osmosis damage to newer boat models has become less common. Nevertheless the risk is still a concern for many owners or potential buyers of used boats.
A careful and recurring inspection of the hull as part of a survey can reveal weak points in the osmosis protection of a hull and thus avoid expensive renovation cases in good time.
For this purpose, we use high-quality moisture measuring devices, specifically designed for FRP testing, as well as active thermal imaging technics in case of suspected Osmoses presence.
Incorrectly dimensioned anodes, stray currents from on-board systems, but also faulty electrical installations at your berth can lead to serious damage to metallic attachments such as the shaft system, sterndrives or thru-hull fittings.
As part of a review of the cathodic protective measures on your boat, we uncover any faults or weaknesses and provide a catalog of measures that you can use to optimize your installations.
INSUFFICIENT CATHODIC PROTECTION INVOLVES A HIGH RISK FOR SAFETY ON BOARD!
