UNDERWATER INSPECTION REPORT

FLAT BOTTOM

No abnormalities were observed on the flat bottom: shell plating, welded seams and butts without deformations or signs of pitting were observed. Approx. 50% of the flat bottom found covered with barnacles up to 0.7cm thick

VERTICAL SIDES & CURVES

No abnormalities were observed on the vertical sides: shell plating, welded seams and butts without deformations or signs of pitting were observed. Approx. 40% of the vertical sides were found fouled with barnacles up to 0.7cm thick and approx. 25% fouled with seagrass up to 0.3cm thick.

SEA CHESTS GRATINGS (5 PCS)

Found in good condition: all grids were in position including bolts and nuts with securing arrangement. Approx. 20-30% fouled with barnacles which were cleaned.

PROPELLER & RUDDER

Due to high swell (approx. 4mtrs) inspection of the propeller and of the rudder was not possible.
