Time and additional expense can be saved by preparing the vessel for inspection and making her more accessible.  Arrange to present a clean, shipshape boat and have all papers and miscellaneous gear ready. If applicable, you will need to make arrangements with the marina to haul the vessel for bottom inspection and have a representative available for sea trial.  Lockers and cabin areas should be cleared of all miscellaneous gear.
We may request minor dismantling of interior ceilings, headliners, flooring, etc. in order to gain access to the suspected areas. Random removal and examination of below-the-waterline fasteners on wood boats may be required. Any dismantling and re- installation of parts should be performed by qualified personnel and is the responsibility of the person ordering the survey.

Written authorization from the owner may be needed to board and/or to remove part of the vessel. This can be obtained under the survey agreements section.
