Boat Inspection Injury
Boat inspections are important events before a boat is able to go into a waterway. Boats are able to be certified safe to go and travel in:
- Coast ways
Some inspections are for annual inspections for the boat, others are inspections for certifications or for a drydock inspection. Boats need to be inspected on a regular basis, to ensure the safety of the watercraft. The problem during the inspection for the inspector, is that there may be unsafe conditions that can be dangerous even for the inspector to be around during the inspection. These deficiencies of a boat can cause serious personal injuries to anyone setting foot onto a boat.
Boat Deficiencies Before and During an Inspection
A boat or sea vessel can have many deficiencies, that make the boat an unsafe environment for the crew, visitors or for an inspector. A deficiency is something that makes the boat unsafe, and can affect the boat, hull or environment.
