The Value of A Marine Surveyor

The value of a marine surveyor

The next time that you are shopping or looking at a list of boats or yachts for sale, it is a good idea to remember that you are not alone when trying to identify the most suitable and safe, sea-worthy vessel for your needs.

What a marine surveyor does

A marine surveyor will carry out an inspection and examination of the  marine vessel that you intend to buy and will check the condition of the boat and the materials aboard. It is like having a survey done before you buy a house, so you know exactly what you are getting before you buy it. A marine surveyor will also inspect equipment that is intended for use on the boat to check that it complies with the relevant safety standards.

The marine surveyor will check that a boat is suitably built and maintained to operate safely in the relevant weather and water conditions. A good marine surveyor will also have the necessary experience of a range of boat models, so that any recurring structural or maintenance weaknesses can be highlighted. In this way, I have found it possible to pick up many maintenance tips. In addition, the paperwork that comes from a marine surveyor can be essential for the necessary insurance coverage.

There are many types of surveys, both for commercial and recreational  purposes .

What's with this Weather?

The icy grip of winter has been encompassing much of the United States. By now, the phrase "polar vortex" has become all too familiar to all of us. Low-pressure systems typically strengthen in winter and weaken in summer. When the polar vortex is strong, the Westerly winds blow hard; when it weakens, the cold air escapes. It seems that in January & February 2014, cold air escaped the Arctic vortex and raced south across much of North America.

These extreme cold events have us all questioning how changes in Earth's atmosphere could be creating warmer temperatures in the Arctic and that are weakening the vortex and leading to more cold weather outbreaks. The White House released a two-minute video last month in which science advisor Dr. John Holdren explains why we might expect to see more extreme cold events in the future.  In the video, Holdren explains that the temperature difference between the Arctic and the mid-latitudes is shrinking and that temperature difference is what drives the polar vortex. Great that we know that,

But ...

what does this all mean to our children?
