INTRODUCTION SCOPE OF SURVEY This survey was conducted at the request of Sterling Albert on September 22nd, 2020. 'In-water' conducted at Treasure Island Marina, where the vessel was afloat at her slip.

The 'Out of Water' survey was conducted October 29th , 2020 at Grand Marina Boat Yard in Alameda, CA.

Ships papers were on board and in order.

The survey was performed in accordance with the terms and conditions of a verbal contract between the surveyor and the requesting party.

Therefore, it is the intent of this document to set forth in writing the scope and limitations of the service provided.

If upon receipt of this document, you as the requesting party disagree with any of the following conditions, please contact the undersigned surveyor immediately.

Any use of this report means it is accepted as is, and constitutes an acceptance of the following terms and conditions: Inspections are made using non-destructive techniques; primarily visual inspection and sounding of areas in an attempt to determine their condition.

Unless otherwise specifically stated in this report, services for the per foot price of a standard survey DO NOT include the testing of tanks, machinery, electrical systems/circuits or electronics, the removal of paneling, ceilings, machinery, cargo, gear or other personal effects in order to access otherwise concealed areas.

No destructive testing has been done, no borings or ultrasonic testing of material thickness performed.

Such services are available at additional cost when authorized by written contract.

When applicable, if no mention is made of wood deterioration in the findings of this report, this is not to be construed as a warranty that none exists.

No survey can establish that a vessel is completely free of wood deteriorating organisms, especially in the light of the many concealed and inaccessible areas encountered on each and every vessel.

Therefore, given the rapid growth rate of such organisms, this surveyor will not accept liability for any such condition discovered later which could not be detected during the course of a normal survey as outlined above and performed under the conditions encountered on the survey date.

This was an 'Out of Water' insurance survey.

Engine was started to move vessel from slip to haul-out 1 hour away - ran well for entirety.

AC shore power is not used.

D.C power was available; some electronic equipment was tested.

A sea trial was not performed.

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS These are required by USCG or USC CFRs and should be addressed before the vessel is next underway.

Refer to “Federal Requirements and Safety Tips for Recreational Boats.” USCG requires: 1.

One wearable type I, II, or III life preserver for each person, or each berth, aboard. 2.

One throwable type IV life preserver. 3.

Approved style, in date, visual distress signals (flares) outside the USCG designated COLREGS (San Francisco Bay out to “Mile Rock”). 4.

Three size B-1 fire extinguishers, one B-II = two BC-1, and four if length of vessel exceeds forty feet overall. 5.

Mounted placards displayed aboard “Dumping of Garbage Prohibited” and Discharge of Oil Prohibited”. *All of the above requirements were met during the time of the survey.


SAFETY REQUIREMENTS AND ABYC RECOMMENDATIONS These findings affect overall safety of the vessel and passengers and should be addressed as soon as possible. 1.

Keel bilge full with water, drain and inspect. 2.

Ensure bilge pump is hardwired & has a float switch, was operation with switch. 3.

Engine bay bilge with 1” of water. 4.

Engine exhaust system: clamps are off of spud. 5.

Fuel: Fuel petcock shut off valve with duct tape on clamp; diesel is getting into fuel gauges atop tank, this will cause plastic to deteriorate and contaminate tank, address this now to prevent fuel issues later. 6.

Corrosion - clean off corrosion on affected structures, investigate extent, and renew or treat with appropriate corrosion inhibitors where noted below; the following structures with varying levels of corrosion & replace fasteners clamps with corrosion - a.

Shaft, coupler 7.

ABYC recommends that all fire extinguishers be serviced annually by a qualified fire technician 8.

This surveyor recommends one CO detector mounted in any and all sleeping areas below deck & ensure they are TURNED ON during use of vessel - Vessels uses carbon-based fuels (gasoline) for propulsion.

During the burning of these fuels, Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas may be created due to incomplete combustion.

Adequate ventilation must be provided at all times while in proximity to ANY vessel burning any these fuels as CO from external sources may also be drawn into the cabin through ventilation systems.

CO is a silent menace and it kills without warning; therefore, this surveyor recommends installation in any occupied spaces below decks a CO alarm (Xintex model CMD-3M, MARINE Technologists model 60-542 or equivalent) that meets UL Standard # 2034.


OTHER FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS These are mostly related to overall maintenance issues and should be addressed in the near future to maintain vessel value and function. 1.

Keep ship's maintenance log updated.

SUMMARY AND VALUATION SUMMARY This vessel was found to be in overall high-average condition for her age.

She is structurally sound with most systems operational and in good order.

Various maintenance items to be address as listed above.

VESSEL RATING OF CONDITION It is the surveyor's experience that develops an opinion as to a vessel's OVERALL VESSEL RATING OF CONDITION immediately after a complete survey has been performed and the findings organized in a logical manner.

The grading of condition, as developed by BUC RESEARCH, and accepted in the marine industry, for a vessel at the time of survey, determines the adjustment to the range of base values in the BUC USED BOAT PRICE GUIDE, for a similar vessel sold within a given time period, as a consideration to determine the Market Value.

The following is the accepted marine grading system of condition: 'EXCELLENT' (BRISTOL) CONDITION' - is a vessel that is maintained in mint or bristol fashion - usually better than factory new, loaded with extras - a rarity. 'ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION'- has had above average care and is equipped with extra electrical and electronic gear. 'AVERAGE CONDITION' - ready for sale requiring no additional work and normally equipped for her size. 'FAIR CONDITION' - requires usual maintenance to prepare for sale. 'POOR CONDITION' - substantial yard work required and devoid of extras.

VALUATION As a result of this investigation, as stated in the SYSTEMS AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS section of this report: OVERALL VESSEL RATING - (HIGH) AVERAGE CONDITION'.

FAIR MARKET VALUE - $ 19,500.00 ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT VALUE - $ 180,000.00 The fair market value is the most probable price in terms of money which a vessel should bring in a competitive and open market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale.

Taking into account the condition rating, an average was reached after researching prices.

The estimated replacement cost indicates the retail cost of a new vessel of the same make/model with similar equipment offered by the same manufacturer or a similar one if the company is no longer in business.
