As part of our pre-purchase survey, we will conduct exterior inspection of the engine for any telltales of problems. During sea trial, we will do wide-open-throttle testing to include RPMs, temperatures, vibrations, smoke, and leaks. We can also provide Oil Analysis.
Complete engine surveys are always suggested on a pre-purchase inspection. An engine surveyor will look more at the internal workings to assure the propulsion system is in suitable condition. For an engine survey contact the following: Ken Navis, 410-923-1373 (gas & diesel), Tom Hug, 410-574-1625 (diesel), or Full Keel Marine Services, 410-246-1666.
If you would like an engine survey, please let us know in your survey request and we can assist in coordinating both inspections.
