EXTERIOR HULL & BOTTOM INSPECTION:
Hull type/Construction: Hand laid and molded fiberglass hull and wood with FRP overlay.
Hull cosmetics: Hull cosmetics are in good condition- nicks and scratches which are typical for a
vessel of this age and service.
Moisture/Delamination: All moisture meter readings on hull sides and surrounding thru hull fittings were relatively dry with normal comparative moisture meter readings.
Stem: Solid, no cracks on external inspection. Moisture readings relatively Dry.
Side thru hull fittings: All thru hull fittings are adequately secured and sealed to hull.
Rub rail: FRP encapsulate hardwood. Fair condition with several deep gouges but remains
serviceable and well secured.

Damage sighted: Large area of delaminated FRP on starboard side of transom.
Construction material: Molded fiberglass, with soft chines.
Osmotic blistering: NO evidence of blisters was found on hull bottom during bottom inspection.
Blister comments: Blisters are an unknown factor on all boats and if not currently present, there is no
guarantee that they will not appear in the future. Blisters have a tendency to dry out over winter storage unless severe or large. Blisters (if any) best appear after vessel has been in water for an entire season. In addition, the symptomatic evidence of blistering can be obscured by bottom coatings, a dry storage period during which blisters spontaneously depressurize, bottom laminate sanding, and other conditions or actions. Recommend full inspection for blisters immediately after haul-out and power wash. Surveyor has no firsthand knowledge of the history of bottom maintenance, blistering, repairs or prophylactic coatings on this vessel.
Moisture/Delamination: All random moisture meter readings on hull bottom and surrounding thru hull
fittings were relatively dry with normal comparative moisture meter readings. No
Delamination discovered when randomly testing with percussion hammer.
