How to conduct a complete mast and rigging survey


Using a series of photos to enhance his seminar, experienced surveyor and yachtsman, Kim Skov-Nielsen, delivered an informative masterclass on this sometimes avoided area of marine surveying – the inspecting and surveying masts and rigs. Kim called on his extensive knowledge, gained over many years, to talk about how to inspect the mast and rigging, when to inspect it, what to expect as you survey and what specifically to look for and where. He also spoke about how to include the findings and recommendations in the report as well as the necessary caveats that should be included. In his presentation, Kim covered all types of rigging from rope to galvanised steel wire to carbon, as well as looking at different types of masts too, whilst reminding surveyors to keep a clear focus on their personal safety at all times.
