Aslin Boat Surveys provide marine surveys according to the following terms and conditions. Aslin Boat Surveys will be inspecting & evaluating the condition of your boat against the accepted industry and government standards. Although a boat may appear safe to launch, please keep in mind that a Marine Surveyor is skilled at looking beyond cosmetic presentation. Structural problems or hazards identified with the boats fuel , propane or electrical systems can result in the Marine Surveyor finding the boat unsafe to launch or insure. A MARINE SURVEY IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF INSURABILITY.
Deficiencies identified in the Marine Survey Report are based on the knowledge & experience of the Marine Surveyor, along with accessibility at the time of the physical inspection. Aslin Boat Surveys shall not, under any circumstances, be held liable for deficiencies not identified due to blocked or limited access, as a result of either vessel design or equipment installed on or in the vessel after manufacture. Clients are encouraged to remove all belongings and non-fixed chattels in preparation for the marine survey, in order to allow full access for the Marine Surveyor. Additional time required to disassemble or to move boat contents during the physical inspection shall be billed according to the rate of $150 per hour. Marine Survey Reports or follow-up consultation reports shall not be released until all additional charges are paid in full (cheques must be cleared at the bank).
Should repairs be required to correct deficiencies prior to launch, such repairs are the responsibility of the vessel owner. An additional marine survey or follow-up consultation may be required to render the boat seaworthy. The cost of an additional survey or follow-up consult shall be borne by the client.
All services provided by Aslin Boat Surveys shall be billed according to the current Pricing Sheet found at aslinboatsurveys.ca at the time the Marine Surveyor physically attends a location to inspect (or re- inspect) a vessel.
Partial payment for services is due before the time the Marine Surveyor physically attends a location to inspect (or re-inspect) a vessel. Balance is due before the report is emailed as a pdf. Preferred method of payment is Interac e-transfer.
Credit Card payments are subject to an additional 3.5% convenience charge.
The Marine Survey Report may take up to 5 business days to be completed. The report will be attached to electronic mail and presented in PDF format. Requests for alternate formats (including printed copies) will be subject to a document fee of $30.
