Blue Ensign are able to conduct most types of condition surveys and trials, whether
for pre- purchase, commercial classification or registration purposes, and have many
years of experience, with all types of materials, modern and traditional.
We are able to test for the thickness of Steel or Aluminium hulls ( ultrasound testing
), osmosis in GRP hulls ( moisture testing ), and rot or worm in wooden hulls. As
well as performing hundreds of pre-purchase surveys, we have worked for several large
insurance underwriters as claim investigators and adjusters for many years.
We also hold a stock of Spectro oil sampling kits, where an indication of mechanical wear in machinery is requested.
