Richard A. Cadv has prepared a new comprehensive reference and guide for marine surveyors, owner's representatives, ship repairers, underwriters, admiralty attorneys and others concerned with marine damage and condition surveys of seagoing vessels, barges, tugs, yachts, dredges, offshore structures and marine fixed shoreside installations.
The new compendium is a consolidation, revision and updating of previous work by Mr. Cady. It reflects a concerted effort to depict current costs of the industry. Seventy-seven survey examples of preliminary field surveys, final damage survey reports, and condition survey reports are offered, which d e l i n e a t e various survey formats encountered in the USA and abroad.
Particulars offered include marine i n s u r a n c e terms, various causes of damage, survey procedures for both damage and condition surveys, arrangements for salvage, and unusual circumstances pertaining to oil pollution, tenders for repairs, wreck removal, repair cost evaluation, etc. Details provided relating to ship repair cost evaluation include facets of competitive bids, time and material cost, negotiated cost, overtime charges, drydocking tariffs and useful tables indicating man-hours and unit cost for steelwork renewals.
The compendium has been contrived and arranged with a view to depicting actual expressions and terminology of the marine industry and providing ready reference to facilitate expedient review of procedures and circumstances possibly applicable to a particular type survey.
