Accredited Marine Surveyor
CONDITION AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
This vessel is in overall good to very good condition w many systems as new.
The vessel is still undergoing final repairs and rework.
Quality of the work being done is very good.
The hull itself is in very good condition w/ a new 1/4 bottom installed in 1997.
All hull framing, deck framing, decks and superstructure are sound w/ new work being upgrades or improvements.
Much of the new work in the main cabin is for living area accommodations.
Used stove and refrigeration are being installed as well as a chemical toilet.
The engines were run and started easily and ran smooth.
The crane was run and used - very good condition The main cargo area deck was removed and will be reinstalled as opening hatches w/ hydraulic opening capability - all work to this point is of good quality.
This vessel is going thru a thorough refit and this should cover any items needed.
I did not fmd any serious items needing attention.
The vessel is safe and seaworthy as is and suitable for any work it was intended for
CURRENT MARKET VALUE:
Based on a caparison of sales and listings of comparable vessels and taking mto account the new work and condition of the vessel as well as the U.S.Navy estimated value set when the vessel was bought at auction, I would place a fair market value of: $100,000
