Walking down the dock on the way to a survey I often get asked “What’s in the bag?”When conducting a survey, I use all the five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. These senses sometimes however need assistance in the form of amplification of the signal.

Tools in the bag to assist with this include

  • Reading glasses & magnifying glass (sight)
  • Stethoscope screw driver (hearing)
  • Infrared thermometer (touch)
  • Salinity meter (taste)
  • Carbon Monoxide detector (smell)

Measurement tools are also required and include:

  • Digital Vernier
  • Stainless steel ruler
  • Steel tape measure
  • Fibre glass tape measure.
  • Digital multi-meter

Digital multi-meterTo record the survey findings and get to see in those difficult to access places I use a digital camera.
For even harder to get to places the borescope (snake camera) is invaluable. And how could I get up the mast without the Bosun’s chair?

Specialist tools are also required to test for:

  • FRP & wood moisture content – Moisture meter
  • FRP delamination – Phenolic hammer
  • Hull thickness – Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge & Sounding hammer
  • Galvanic & stray current corrosion – Silver chloride reference electrode & SeaBis Master.

Whilst we don’t carry an IR Spectrometer or Viscometer for oil analysis we do have the necessary tools to take oil from an engine for laboratory analysis without contaminating the sample.

Other less exciting items in the bag include:

  • Torch
  • Sand paper
  • Paint scraper
  • Wire brush
  • Assorted screw drivers
  • Gerber Multi tool
  • Paper towel or clean rags
  • Pencils, markers & chalk
  • Rubbish bags
  • Spare batteries
  • Masking tape

And, of course, PPE’s (Personal Protective Equip-ment). So, what’s in the bag?The tools of the trade and other items necessary to survey a yacht
