MMS or Student $95. All Others $195.

Boaters need services and accommodations. Marinas and boatyards fulfill this need. Boaters rely on clean waters for maximum enjoyment transit, swimming, fishing, and viewing natural resources.

A marine surveyor has the potential to be an important resource consultant for new boat owners whether they have purchased a new, refitted, or used boat. A marine surveyor has a duty and responsibility to be independent yet well trained to advocate/consultant for the safety of all.

Marina operators are the gatekeepers to the waters, and as such have a responsibility to minimize risk, danger and contaminants so that the waters remain clean for their customers. Increasingly, with the surge in boat ownership, marina operators are asking boat owners for proof of insurance at limits the marina has set. Even a well-run marina is not without risk to boat owners and a well-educated boater, even one who continually self-educates, is not without risk to the marina.

This course is intended solely as a guide to assist the marine surveyor in vessel inspection. It is not intended to be legal advice. It is a guide for marine surveyors as they promote safety, boat condition for recreational boaters and marketing as they protect key components of successful social
boat keeping. It is also intended to highlight what encompasses the business of marinas and some of the issues and conflicts that marina operators face.
