There is also a visual inspection of the mast base and chain plates, light fixtures and other mounted fixtures. Running rigging and deck hardware is assessed. The end of the inspection includes a verbal summary and pictures of any problems or potential problems sighted. Including a written estimate to fix the issues found or any requested upgrades if desired. $10 per ft. (*Systems are not disassembled during inspection.)
The estimates /invoices are written in way to satisfy general insurance requirements for reports.
Level 2 Inspection: Includes top to bottom visual inspection of the entire rigging system. Including a full written report of the findings, as well as the exact length and size of the wires, terminal types and pin sizes. The information in this report would be thorough enough to perform a complete standing re-rig. $18 per ft.
Level 3 Inspection: Includes the demasting and decommissioning/ disassembly of the rigging components. Inspection using magnification, and cataloging of rigging components. Occasionally the U.S.C.G. requires this level of inspection of inspected vessels. Hourly labor rate + machinery cost. (i.e. crane, fork truck, etc.)
*Visual inspections are made using nondestructive methods only unless otherwise arranged.
