Unit 32. Hulls & Machine Damage Claims
We are concerned in this unit with surveys carried out for insurance claims on commercial vessels and pleasure craft, and especially with the role of the surveyor in connection with them. The skills of surveyors who attend large commercial vessels are usually very different from those attending to small commercial and pleasure craft, although there are a number of aspects of their role which is common to both.
This unit is not intended to provide the surveyor with the technical skills of the specific details to look for during a survey which comes from the discipline in which he has been trained. It is intended here to assist an understanding of the culture of surveying, the manner in which a survey should be carried out so as to provide appointing principals with information required to consider insurance claims.
This module is in two main parts:
Part 1: Hull surveys with some background understanding of their purpose and the use to which they are put.
Part 2 An introduction to marine hull insurance to further the understanding of this background. Hull damage surveying on behalf of underwriters comprises a significant area of work for many marine surveyors, some tending to specialise in this work. In this unit we are concerned with the role of the surveyor and insurance in connection with claims
made under hull policies.
