                                   • It is the nature of marine vessels that deterioration, wear and accidents do
                                     occur and as such, this report therefore represents the condition of the
                                     vessel only at the time the survey was conducted.

                                   and access door, folding swim step or
                                   ladder attached. Transom davits installed
                                   for dinghy, Well secured, no cracks or
                                   defects sighted. Moisture readings were
                                   relatively dry. Pito tube pickup for
                                   speedometer OK.

                                                                               Transom and swim platform

   2.8 Moisture/
   Delamination:                   All moisture meter readings on side hull near the water line and
                                   surrounding thru hull fittings were relatively dry with normal comparative
                                   moisture meter readings. Cuprous anti-fouling paint gave false high
                                   readings by the moisture meter. Percussion testing with a phenolic
                                   hammer on a 6" grid pattern revealed, what appears to be solid laminate.
   2.9 Condition
   summary:                        No evidence of damage or blistering.
   2.10 Damage sighted:            No damage sighted.

ABOVE WATER LINE THRU-HULLS
   2.11 -->STEM:                   Anchor/chain locker drains thru side of stem.
   2.12 -->HULL SIDES:             Stainless steel mushroom Used for; sink drains, A/C discharge drain(s),
                                   Vents for: fuel tank(s), water tank(s), waste tank(s), engine compartment

   2.13 -->TRANSOM:                Plastic mushroom head fittings: used for: cockpit /deck drain(s), bilge /
                                   sump drain(s)

HULL BOTTOM
   2.14 Construction
   material:                       Molded fiberglass (FRP). No cracks or separation sighted of any portion
                                   of hull bottom.
   2.15 Bottom paint:              Anti-fouling bottom paint in good condition. Areas under jack stands need
                                   to be painted before commissioning.
   2.16 Osmotic blistering:        NO evidence of blisters was found on hull bottom during bottom
                                   inspection.
   2.17 Blister comments:          Blisters are an unknown factor on all boats and if not currently present,
                                   there is no guarantee that they will not appear in the future. Blisters have
                                   a tendency to dry out over winter storage unless severe or large. Blisters
                                   (if any) best appear after vessel has been in water for an entire season. In
                                   addition, the symptomatic evidence of blistering can be obscured by
                                   bottom coatings, a dry storage period during which blisters spontaneously
                                   depressurize, bottom laminate sanding, and other conditions or actions.
                                   Recommend full inspection for blisters immediately after haulout and
                                   power wash. Surveyor has no firsthand knowledge of the history of bottom
                                   maintenance, blistering, repairs or prophylactic coatings on this vessel.
   2.18 Moisture/
   Delamination:                   Moisture meter readings not taken due to vessel bottom wet/just hauled out
                                   and wet hull/bottom paint would provide false moisture readings.
                                   Percussion hammer testing showed No evidence of any delamination on
                                   hull bottom.
   2.19 Delamination:              Percussion hammer testing done on a 6" grid revealed no evidence of any
                                   delamination on hull bottom.
   2.20 Grounding
   damage:                         None noted.
   2.21 Thru Hulls                 All thru-hull fittings were adequately sealed and bonded to hull as sighted
                                   from exterior. Serviceable.

HULL INTERIOR
   2.45 Hull to Deck Joint:        Not sighted due to lack of access. No leaks sighted thru hull to deck joint
                                   area.
   2.46 Bilge(s):                  Mostly clean and dry. Rinse out before commissioning. Place oil
                                   absorbent pads under each engine to prevent accidental pumping of oil
                                   from engines overboard.
   2.47 Stringers:                 Stringers checked with Moisture meter where accessible. Engine room
                                   center stringer shows possible above normal moisture readings. No
                                   delamination or soft spots were detected when tapped with a phenolic
                                   hammer. The presence of higher than normal moisture does NOT mean
                                   that rot is present. It is not unusual to discover somewhat higher than
                                   normal moisture readings in stringers. Recommend monitoring stringer
                                   condition and keeping bilge areas as dry as possible by eliminating/
                                   reducing all sources of water intrusion. Also make sure all limber holes
                                   and any stringer penetrating bolts, screws etc are adequately sealed.




   2.48 Bulkheads:                 Sound (where accessible) by visual inspection.
   2.49 Stem:                      Solid stem, no cracks or separation sighted inside.

                      CONDITION & VALUE REPORT SUMMARY

DECLARATION:

Rating of vessel condition was determined upon completion and review of all reported survey information
including recommendations and comparing vessel to the same or similar age models. Possible vessel
condition ratings are as follows:

EXCELLENT                - "BRISTOL" Essentially as new in appearance- loaded with extras. A rarity.

ABOVE AVERAGE - Has had above average care with no obvious defects or limitations. Equipped
with optional electrictroncs or systems.

AVERAGE                  - Ready for sale needing no repairs, updates or cleaning. Also known as "BUC
Condition"

FAIR                     - Needs the usual maintenance, repair or service to prepare for sale

POOR                     - Requires substantial yard work and is devoid of extras.

RESTORABLE               - Enough of the hull and engine exists to restore the boat to usable condition.

Estimated fair market value was determined by cross referencing data from, BUC, NADA, Powerboat Guide
and other brokerage listings or local dealers. Adjustments are then made for condition or equipment as
necessary. The fair market value is for the vessel in it's current condition prior to any repairs or maintenance.

Estimated replacement cost was determined using information obtained from BUC ValuPro.com and dealer
prices using the same or similar make and model with similar equipment options.

•       RATING OF VESSEL CONDITION................ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION This vessel
that has had above average care and/or is equipped with extra options and electronic gear

•       ESTIMATED FAIR MARKET VALUE...........$80,000.00 per BUC ValuPro adjusted for
condition

•       ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT COST............$140,000.00 per BUCValuPro.com

•      INTENDED USE OF VESSEL...........................Pleasure cruising, Inshore day cruising and local
overnight Southeastern New England

•       SUITABILITY FOR INTENDED SERVICE: Vessel IS considered fit for it's intended use
                              and upon correction of all listed Priority I and specific Priority
II                                   recommendations.
