An educational glimpse at what we inspect on our surveys, important finds, opinions on specific boat brands, general boating knowledge and tips.
Here we show you how we percussion test a deck using a phenolic hammer to look for delaminated fiberglass and rotted coring.
In this video we found a section of the transom and stringers are rotted on a Gibson houseboat using a phenolic hammer to percussion test.
Here we have a shaft seal that is leaking at a rate that could easily sink a boat. Dripless shaft seals like this should never leak. Routinely inspect your shaft packing to ensure it is not leaking.
