Blue Wave Marine Surveyors, LLC
- Surveys steel, aluminum, fiberglass, wood and Ferro-cement
- Ultrasonic testing of steel, aluminum and fiberglass hulls
- D.F.O. measurements for fisheries and ocean regulations
Gauging steel, aluminum and fiberglass hulls.
Non-destructive thickness measurement for steel,
aluminum, fiberglass and fiberglass gel coat.
Hull Corrosion and Osmosis analysis
Silver/Silver Chloride Half Cell Testing is an
in-water corrosion test that determines susceptibility to galvanic
and stray current corrosion, it is also an indication of the
condition and proper operation of Zincs.
Osmosis is best defined as a chemical breakdown in a
laminate due to moisture ingress which ultimately results in
blistering of the gel coat.
- Coating Thickness Gauging non-destructively measures the
thickness of coatings on metals.
Moisture Testing involving non-destructive
The Tramex Skipper Moisture Meter:-- Determines intrusion of moisture into fiberglass
laminate, susceptibility to blisters.
- Indicates saturation of wooden structural systems,
propensity to rot.
- Used to determine condition of wood boat planking
and structural components.
The vessel will need to be hauled out, all water
removed from the bilge and small areas of bottom paint may need to
be removed. Best results after 48 hours out of water.
Engine Compression Testing and Analysis
Diesel and gasoline engine compression and leak down
testing indicates worn out engine, ring compression problems, valve
Spectrometric Engine Fluid Analysis.
Lab Spectrometer Analysis is $50 per engine, flat
rate, no hourly fee.
State-of-the-art Spectrometers identify and measure
contaminates if any, such as unburned fuel, anti-freeze, fresh or
salt water, carbon and dirt.
The Spectrometers also detect normal or abnormal
levels of metal particles; aluminum from pistons, chromium from
rings, copper from bearings and iron from the crankshaft.
Data adjusts to marine engine make, total engine
hours and hours since last oil change.
Allow two weeks for lab results and report.
Internal Borescope Inspection for diesel and gas engines,
turbines, marine gear and other equipment.
