  • MOISTURE METERS: I use two separate types of Moisture Meters to assure an accurate reading.
  • REMOTE INSPECTION CAMERA: Used for hard to see areas.
  • 12 VOLT BATTERY PACK:  Even if the batteries are off the vessel, I can usually test the 12 volt systems with a portable pack.
  • SHORE POWER PACK: I use this custom built portable power pack to test 120 volt shore power systems when shore power is unavailable.
  • TRAILER & MAST LIGHT TESTER: This custom built tester is used to test trailer lights and is also used to test Mast lights when the mast is off the boat.
  • ULTRASONIC THICKNESS TESTER: Used to inspect metallic hulls.
These tools and more, ensure a thorough and comprehensive survey and report of your vessel.
