Surveying and Inspecting Small Craft Engines


Geoff Waddington FIIMS and IIMS President presented an online seminar on surveying and inspecting small craft engines. Geoff is a highly experienced marine surveyor with an engineering background gained from service in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy before joining the profession. He is an active surveyor operating in both the UK and Portugal and is also an MCA coding examiner. Geoff has an all-round knowledge of small craft and ships of all types, but in this presentation he focused his attention on vessels below 24 metres. Many surveyors these days are reluctant to survey the engines, simply choosing to report the make and model of the propulsion unit and going no further. Geoff showed where to look and what to look for. He also shared his knowledge of common engine faults as well as giving many practical hints and tips.
