Marine Damage Survey
There are a lot of things that can damage and take a serious toll on your boat, such as storms, fires, and collisions. When damages occur, it's helpful to schedule a boat damage survey. Damage surveys determine the cause and extent of the damage and can help determine the cost of any necessary repairs. Some damages may be small, while others may be large. You won't know the extent of the damage until you schedule a marine damage survey. Insurance companies, vessel owners, and other vested entities can all request a damage and marine insurance survey from a professional surveyor.
Every damage and boat survey for insurance purposes is different since it depends on the situation. If the damage is small and localized, then the surveyor may need to inspect one part of the boat. However, if the damage is serious and widespread, the surveyor may need to inspect your entire boat. At the end of the survey, the surveyor will inform you of the cause and extent of the damage as well as provide an estimate of the repair costs.
With the results from a marine damage survey, you will have the information you need to bring your boat back to its original condition. You'll know the cause and extent of the damage, and you'll also know what repairs are necessary to get your boat back out on the water. You'll need to know the full extent of the damage since even a seemingly minor problem could turn into a major issue. Additionally, a damaged boat is unsafe and unpredictable, so you should schedule a marine damage survey and repairs before taking your boat on the water.
