SURVEYORS

A Marine surveyor or "Yacht & Small Craft Surveyor" is a person who conducts inspections, surveys or examinations of marine vessels to assess, monitor and report on their condition and the products on them including electrical and gas certification.

Marine surveys typically include the structure, machinery and equipment (navigational, safety, radio, etc.) and general condition of a vessel. It also includes judging materials on board and their condition.

A marine survey is a general requirement from insurance companies upon sale.

Below are contact details for a few local surveyors.

MOORINGS

A mooring refers to any permanent structure to which a vessel may be secured. Examples include quays, wharfs, jetties, piers, anchor buoys, and mooring buoys. A ship is secured to a mooring to forestall free movement of the ship on the water. An anchor mooring fixes a vessel's position relative to a point on the bottom of a waterway without connecting the vessel to shore. As a verb, mooring refers to the act of attaching a vessel to a mooring.
Below is a list of local mooring specialists:

ANTI-FOULING and SHIPWRIGHTS

Anti-fouling paint or bottom paint is a specialized coating applied to the hull of a ship or boat to slow the growth of organisms that attach to the hull and can affect a vessel's performance and durability. Hull coatings may have other functions in addition to their antifouling properties, such as acting as a barrier against corrosion on metal hulls, or improving the flow of water past the hull of a fishing vessel or high-performance racing yacht.
