Surveying Yachts and Small Craft, Paperback Book


This is the only book linked to a practical surveying course.

Highly practical in nature, and packed with detailed close-up photography, step by step procedures, and helpful checklists, this definitive handbook will prove a godsend to small craft owners who want to check out defects on their own boats or on boats they are planning to buy, as well as practicing surveyors and surveying students. Featuring surveying bodies, equipment required, assessing defects (including moisture-related defects, and the use of moisture meters) and their severity, the book guides the reader through conducting a thorough inspection, from keel to topsides, coachroof, stern gear, rigging and much more.

The highly practical approach of this book will be invaluable to students of surveying, qualified surveyors and yacht and boat owners everywhere.
