Breakdown Inspection of Material during Yacht repair Inspection.
There are different types of materials used in structures and how structures are put together to resist the forces. All of the above has been based on the supposition that the materials remain and function in accordance with their normal properties. However, in practice all materials are subject to degradation over time from a variety of different sources. some examples of materials used for yachts noted in their several years of experience by constellation marine inspectors are as under:-
Wood and dhows Repair Inspection.
Timber that has been well seasoned and that is kept in a uniform state of moisture (neither too wet nor too dry) when properly ventilated will remain stable and with no significant degradation for many hundreds of years. However, as a naturally occurring material, wood has naturally occurring enemies which come in the form of fungus (mould), worms and beetles which need to be inspected carefully.
Common Rot noticed by constellation marine surveyors during detailed Yacht/Boat condition inspection and surveys.
This is manifested by the presence of external yellow spots on the ends of the timber and is often accompanied by yellowish dust especially where the pieces of timber are in contact. The main cause is poor ventilation of the timber.
What is Wet Rot and how significant is it to be noticed during Yacht repair inspection?
Moisture, especially in the presence of warmth, will dissolve out some of the constituents of the cell walls and thereby cause decay. However, timber kept constantly immersed in water may soften but does not, in general, decay. It is the cyclical nature of wetting and drying that does the damage.

The boat surveyor’s Dubairole in its investigation and reporting.
Because my principal experience as a surveyor over the years has been
as an underwriters’ surveyor, my comments in this paper are
understandably slanted towards insurance claims but many of the
principles will not be lost on surveyors appointed by other principals.
The role of independent marine surveyors
It is well established that a surveyor’s principal role is to establish
the facts as they relate to nature, cause and extent (three words
with which I am sure you are all very familiar) when instructed to
carry out a damage or loss survey but, of the three, we are
principally concerned in this paper with cause/causation.
However, before becoming immersed in discussion on this
fundamental role I am going to remind you briefly that a surveyor
has at least two other important functions.
A marine insurance policy will often contain a clause specifically
alerting the assured to their responsibilities to take appropriate
steps to mitigate a loss and to claim on third parties.
The assured is required to do both of these as a condition of
acceptance of any claim under the policy but in any event, under
English law, it a common law requirement for a claimant to
mitigate a loss, as it is under the law of many other countries.
Mitigation of loss
Hull and machinery Surveyors, from their wide experience of marine claims in one form
or another, are often in a very good position to advise a claimant on
both their need to mitigate a loss, and also in many cases on the
best method of doing so.
However, surveyors must bear in mind that it is not their role to
actually involve themselves with the appropriate action unless
otherwise instructed by their principals.

Excluded Perils:
Sentimental loss - This is a market loss and never recoverable under a marine policy
marine surveyor dubai
Sympathetic Damage – is when one cargo damages another cargo in the same vicinity. If the damage to the first is caused by an insured peril then the resultant damage to the second cargo is considered to be by the same peril and is recoverable as a loss by that peril.

Major marine insurance markets exist in the UK, Continent of Europe, the USA and Japan. Markets in other countries tend to cater solely for their own nations for e.g., in certain countries, business people are required to insure with their national insurance companies. THE MARINE INSURANCE MARKET Insurance companies – UK and overseas:
Marine Insurance forms a section of their total business interest.
The underwriter being a salaried employee has no individual liability. However, the company would be liable to the extent of it‟s paid up share capital. Most of these companies have bureau at the „Institute of London Underwriters‟ (ILU) and nearby.
