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.
