age and location. As different vessel types vary, so do the fees depending on
the complexity of the vessel model. Our rates are competitive with the region.

of your  purchase.

Oil Testing

Clarke Marine Surveyors can provide oil testing.  Oil testing is an excellent way to check the internal condition of a boats engine(s), transmission(s) and generator(s).  The analysis can assist in determining the mechanical soundness of an engine or component.  The tests at the Oil Laboratory include emission and infrared spectroscopy to monitor internal wear rates and the physical properties of the oil.  The test is performed for 9 elements, 6 wear metals, and 3 contaminant metals.  These tests are $45.00 each.
