Drew Robertson of Skippers Plan also understands what he is reading, few others do. Witness the surveys they accept .... HULL - Good, ENGINES - Two

I once wrote a survey for a charter boat out of Port Credit and wrote in the report " This vessel will explode" ..... within days this fella had a policy and was taking families out fishing ! Several times I have noted in survey reports that anti-fouling needed refreshing and have the insurer demand it be done right away. It is a bizarre crap shoot.

This industry is a shoddy amateur hour from one end to the other.
Thanks for confirming all my worst fears
