Underwater Hull Inspection Services

CompassWhile performing underwater hull cleaning, San Diego Hull Divers will fully inspect the entire boat hull surface, propellers zincs, shafts, struts, rudders, keels, metals and through hulls and if we find any damages or issues that require any attention, we will contact you and/or take a snapshot or underwater video of the problem and provide you with a copy along with recommendations on the best course of action for your boat’s hull. This helps to prevent further damage and reduce future hull maintenance and vessel repair costs.

Underwater Surveys and Insurance Inspections

San Diego Hull Divers can provide a detailed assessment of all the underwater machinery in your vessel or a pre-purchase inspection. It may also be carried out as a separate assignment for a vessel owner who just wants his boat checked out.  The pre-purchase survey or insurance inspection includes an underwater inspection of all machinery, hull and through hulls. Usually we can provide this all during your monthly hull cleaning. With correctly running under water propulsion and machinery your vessel will last longer and run better. Underwater machinery must be inspected for collision damage, corrosion damage and wear. On a sailboat, the keel is most exposed to collision damage. A collision of the forward section of the keel will produce extensive aft damage to the keel. Problems associated with each of these units remains the same, wear, collision damage, and corrosion. Before you buy a boat or yacht, call San Diego Hull Divers for a comprehensive underwater inspection of the vessel’s hull, running gear and metals

San Diego Hull Divers provides you with the options of video and still images of your hull during underwater hull cleaning or underwater inspections.

Protect yourself and your investment by having video of your hull, propeller and shaft and least every year.
