Marine damage surveys are performed to assess the extent of damage and the proximate cause of a vessel related accident. The survey is specifically focused on the damage and its affect on the value of the boat. The surveyor examines and reports on the condition of the boat, the probable cause of the damage, recommended repairs, and an estimate of the cost of such repairs.
A Casualty Investigation (in addition to a Damage Survey) is usually requested by the insurance company when the cause of the damage or loss is not clearly apparent or is in question.
Hunter Consulting & Survey Services is doing marine damage (post casualty) surveys since 1996, with the ability to determine cause, extent and recommended repairs of damages; from a variety of marine losses.
