Author: Wall, Mike
Publication date: 25 Feb 2011
A comprehensive book which provides a solid framework for marine surveyors to develop their report writing skills.
This rare addition to the library of marine surveyors comes from the efforts of Mike Wall who is well known in the online world for the zine he publishes for the profession called Flashlight. We had a small hand in the gestation of the book --performing slight service as a marriage broker between these aspiring publishers and Mike. The book is heavily accentuated in favour of the practical and the demonstrable. There are lots of illustrations, forms and templates which ought to tempt the tyros to acquire a copy and plenty of words for more senior surveyors on such subjects as discovery, evidence, t&cs, insurance, limiting liability and copyright. The kinds of work a marine surveyor may be called to do, from pre-purchase condition surveys to simple box damage claims are all considered and illustrated. At 320 pages the book certainly covers a lot of ground.
