Standard.... Shmandard... This boils down to INSURANCE and their liability for problems that could occur. If you have any claim in the future and it is directly tied to any of the items listed in his report, regardless of whether they are ABYC standards or not, the insurance company now has basis for not paying the claim (if they choose to fight).

I think you're missing the point ENTIRELY by worrying about his choice of wording on the report about how quickly they need to be fixed. If he didn't want you sailing to the fuel dock, he would have told you so. Instead, he is providing a report that the INSURANCE company can/will use to deny claims, regardless of how strong his choice of words are.
