Marine surveyors determine the condition and seaworthiness of boat
Marine surveyors work to determine the condition, value and safety of boats and other marine vessels. Often, insurance companies call upon the skills of a marine surveyor for claims and reports. Many marine surveyors belong to four professional organizations; the American Boat & Yacht Council, Association of Certified Marine Surveyors, National Fire Protection Association and the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors.
The Chapman School of Seamanship offers a six-week, 180-hour yacht and small craft surveying program. The four-part course begins with 53 hours of study about the design, materials, and construction of a boat's hull, and finding deficiencies within it. The 54-hour second section teaches students how to test and examine engine-powered or sail propulsion and support systems. Section three totals 29 hours and gives the how-to's for conducting a marine survey business including professional and legal topics. The final 44-hour section gives step-by-step instructions for assessing boat seaworthiness and condition and gives students an opportunity to prepare three surveys and reports.
