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 can 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.
